Ways to support ECU’s Students through the Division of Student Affairs

There are many ways you can support us - from annual gifts and capital contributions.  Whatever the vehicle, your support enables us to continue to enhance the experience of our students.  To learn more about giving opportunities and methods of giving, review the options below.  You may also give online or us directly. 

Also, remember that many companies and businesses sponsor corporate matching programs. Your gift to the Division of Student Affairs could be doubled by your employer. ECU receives twice as much money, and the donor receives credit for the original donation, as well as the match. Please check with your employer to see if they sponsor a corporate matching program of some kind. Remember that all gifts are tax deductible.
