The Annual Fund is the backbone of everything we do.

Gifts to the Annual Fund provide critical support for student scholarships and financial aid, upgrades to campus facilities, field components to coursework, and a host of other aspects of the COA experience.

Strong participation in 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, the percentage of individuals who participate is the most important measure that is used to evaluate community-wide support. 

We ask that all members of the COA community to participate in the Annual Fund. Regardless of the amount, each and every gift is important!  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.
