Create Immediate Impact

The Fisher Fund bridges a critical gap supporting the mission of the University.

Grow the Fisher Fund

The Fisher Fund enriches the student academic experience in so many small and critical ways, while enabling the University to meet strategic goals. It supports operating expenses, forming the foundation of all philanthropic giving, and bridges a critical gap supporting the mission of the University. It also supports campus improvements to help elevate and improve the student experience.

An Impactful Investment

Unrestricted dollars from the Fisher Fund enable the University to create and sustain transformative student experiences. Maintaining a strong and growing annual fund is essential, especially amid the dynamic landscape of higher education that exists today.

The Spire Society, the University’s elite contributors to the Fisher Fund, is a network of Fisher leaders and dedicated supporters who invest in our students, our people, and our mission. The collective impact of their support continues to grow.

Your generous gift to the Fisher Fund will increase this immediately impacting University resources, expanding Fisher’s flexibility to facilitate individualized and meaningful academic experiences for every student.
