Areas to Support

Make a Gift, Change a Life

Gifts from generous alumni, parents, students, and friends provide the resources needed to offer a world-class education and fulfill Rollins' mission of educating students for a lifetime of responsible leadership and global citizenship. Be the reason Rollins students achieve their dreams and transform our world.

It's up to YOU!

You can choose how your gift supports Rollins. You can give to a specific program or you can support our most urgent needs through giving to the Rollins Annual Fund. Learn about all the areas you can directly impact.

Rollins Annual Fund

By giving to the Rollins Annual Fund, you ensure our greatest and most immediate needs are being met. This fund is an unrestricted giving pathway, providing immediate financial aid to current students. Rollins Annual Fund also keeps us innovative and nimble in a constantly changing landscape by allowing for investment in the latest strategies, programs, and technologies to enhance the student experience.

Here are the invaluable initiatives Rollins Annual Fund supports.

Area of Greatest Need

By designating your contribution to the College's area of greatest need, you grant Rollins the flexibility to use your gift the moment it is received. A gift to this general designation will impact the following areas: financial aid, library resources, study abroad opportunities, laboratory equipment, collaborative research, classroom technology, undergraduate education and life, career services, student success initiatives, student advising, and campus maintenance.

The upcoming generation will become the leaders and influencers within our own communities and beyond. Ensuring these students have access to a Rollins experience is a powerful way to impact the future.

The Future of Rollins: Our Endowment

Behind every prosperous college is a healthy, successful endowment.

Much like investing in a portfolio created by donations, a contribution to the endowment is a lasting gift for Rollins’ future. That's because a healthy endowment eases the College's financial burden during challenging times and allows Rollins to prosper even more during fortunate times. To preserve the endowment, Rollins manages investments responsibly and uses the annual interest from the account to fund scholarships, programs, and initiatives aligned with our mission and donor specifications.

An endowed gift benefits:

Faculty Chairs
Student-Faculty Collaborative Scholarship
Curricular Innovation
Lifelong Career Services
Community Engagement
Study Abroad
