The Annual Fund is the backbone of everything we do.

Since tuition and endowment income combined are not sufficient to meet all operating expenses, the Annual Fund helps close the gap. Gifts to the Annual Fund provide critical support for countless aspects of the COA experience, including student scholarships and financial aid, field-based coursework, and upgrades to campus facilities.

Strong support of the Annual Fund is also a way for us to demonstrate commitment and dedication to College of the Atlantic when applying for foundation or corporate gifts.

All members of the COA community are invited to contribute to the Annual Fund. Regardless of the amount, each and every gift is important to this small-but-mighty college!  Learn more about our giving societies here.

The Annual Fund campaign begins July 1 and runs until the fiscal year’s end on June 30. Special solicitation appeals are made in the fall and spring, but gifts are welcome anytime throughout the year.

College of the Atlantic is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Your contribution is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
