Allocating Unrestricted Annual Fund Dollars in 2012–2013
In 2012–2013, seventy-nine percent of donors made unrestricted Annual Fund gifts. Included in each area are:
Academic Enrichment. Gifts to the Annual Fund support Haverford’s tradition of collaborative scholarship in which students learn from and work with faculty. In addition to supporting every academic department, gifts in this category also go to support services such as the libraries and three academic centers.
Financial Aid. The Annual Fund helps underwrite the College’s need-blind admission policy by supporting College grants. These grants are awarded in place of loans, making Haverford more affordable for all academically qualified students. In 2012–2013, 50 percent of students received financial aid from the College.
Student Life. Contributions to student life go to that resources and services that support students’ well-being on campus, including health services, professional and career advising, groups devoted to artistic expression, social justice, self-governance, and much more.
Community Support. Community support includes the administration and key operations of the College, such as the president’s and provost’s offices, campus safety, human resources and institutional advancement (IA). Last year, IA supported donors who provided nearly $23,000,000 in gifts to Haverford. The Annual Fund represents 23 percent of that total and seven percent of the College’s $80 million operating budget.
Campus and Facilities. Haverford’s 70 architecturally diverse buildings sit on a 200 acre campus that is widely noted for its beauty and 2,500 trees. The Annual Fund ensures that these assets are maintained and upgraded as needed.
Athletics. Gifts to athletics underwrite the teams, clubs, programs and activities that foster a culture of intellectual, physical and personal development among Haverford students.
