Annual Giving

Gifts designated to one of our annual funds are used during the year in which they are received to meet the current needs of our students. Guilford alumni, families, faculty, staff and friends make important commitments to Guilford students and programs by designating support to these funds.

When you think of Guilford, you may think first of the rigor and richness of its traditional liberal arts education. Or perhaps you reflect on the learning environment founded in Quaker values. Or maybe you think about the individualized faculty attention provided to each student.

Regardless of what your image of Guilford is, it has no doubt been realized through the assistance of the Annual Funds. The annual funds are the lifeblood of Guilford, supporting nearly every aspect of life at Guilford.

The Annual Funds cover it all, from keeping the lights on to providing scholarships to outstanding students. The Annual Funds cover all aspects of Guilford’s commitment to preparing future leaders, supporting outstanding educators and building community.
