Give to the INFO College

The future of information is happening now. At the College of Information Studies (INFO), faculty, staff, and students are exploring how information profoundly touches our lives: in government, education, health care, employment, and more.

Now more than ever, private gifts are vital to our college’s ability to remain a leader in conducting groundbreaking research and training the next generation of information professionals. Every gift makes a statement about the importance of information education.

Endowments, Estate Planning, Gifts of Appreciated Securities, Gifts of Liquid Assets

With a passion for library and information science, information management, data science, technology development, and other areas of INFO College education and research, alumni and friends have chosen to support the college by endowing a scholarship, fellowship, or professorship; providing gifts of appreciated securities or liquid assets; or in their estate plans. Estate planning provides the college with a long-term funding capacity, and at the same time potentially generates income for you or your loved ones.
