What draws each of us to Ashland is precisely the same thing that draws out our potential. It's the people of Ashland. When you give, our students are able to share in this unforgettable experience. Students make memories and moments that start when they arrive on campus and connect them for the rest of their lives. We become a community of individuals. We learn to thrive, serve others, build our confidence, and grow into better people.
Unrestricted annual gifts allow us to create and sustain the kind of opportunities that only happen at Ashland. Gifts to the Ashland Fund provide the flexibility to support our students in a wide range of ways and meet their unique needs. Whether it's a student organization, an academic program, an internship, research, athletics, or an opportunity abroad, students learn what's out there and what they can expect from themselves. When it's time to take the leap to our next chapter, we know they will be ready.

Financing the Future
The future of the student experience at Ashland relies on the generosity of our donors through support for capital projects, planned giving and endowments. Establishing a named endowment creates a permanent legacy for donors or it can serve as a thoughtful and lasting tribute to a family member or favorite professor. A gift to create an endowment may be made in the form of a multi-year pledge, with gift payments made for up to five (5) years. The minimum gift to establish an endowment is $25,000, which is invested and only the interest is spent.
Ashland has different endowment possibilities to directly benefit our students, programs, and faculty. Establish a named endowment and provide consistent financial support to Ashland University in perpetuity.
Academic Program Support
Our professors have the opportunity to enlighten and inspire our students, both in the classroom and in the relationships they form outside the classroom. They have the rare ability to create these special relationships during some of the most formative years in the lives of Ashland students. A world-class faculty is imperative to the success of any university, and Ashland is blessed to have professors and instructors dedicated to providing the very best teaching and mentoring possible. Our faculty strive to improve the experiences of Ashland students in the classroom and beyond.
Supporting academic programs or faculty are incredibly powerful ways to continue and enhance this mission. Gifts in the form of endowed chairs and professorships allow Ashland to recruit excellent faculty, fuel beloved professors and continue to improve and enhance the opportunities students within a program can access.
To support our academic programs or faculty, complete the form below. We’ll contact you and discuss how your gift can allow professors to continue to help shape our students into the individuals they were meant to be.

But, we cannot do it without you! Endowed athletic scholarships and your individual gifts in support of specific sports teams give us the ability to recruit high-caliber student-athletes who embody our values and represent Ashland around the world. Your gift fuels every race pulled out at the finish line. Your donation sets the block that opens up the rivalry game’s final inside run into the end zone.

The classroom experience is critical to the personal and academic growth of students at Ashland University. But during their college journey, opportunities to engage in student experiences outside of the classroom are just as important. As a key part of living out our commitment to Accent on the Individual, your support for student life and activities at Ashland allows us to sustain existing and create new opportunities for the next generation to grow into the leaders they are called to be.
Because of our emphasis on the uniqueness of each student, we offer a wide range of options designed to get individuals plugged in where they can grow, thrive and build the memories they will carry with them forever.
Our commitment to military-connected students and their families finds its home in the Jack W. Liebert Military & Veteran Resource Center. For many years, Ashland has invested in the spiritual health of students through our rich religious life and Christian ministry programs. Students learn initiative, cooperation, and leadership within our robust fraternity and sorority life. Through the Career Center for Life Calling, students can access the information and resources they need to prepare for future success.
And that is truly just the beginning.
An initial gift, given out of a personal passion, sparked each of these initiatives. Now we need your help to feed the fire. Click below to give now or learn more about how you can support student life and activities at Ashland.
