About the Annual Fund

Consider this fact: tuition at Denison only covers approximately 65 percent of what it really costs to educate a Denison student. The Annual Fund helps make up the difference.

President Adam Weinberg puts it this way: “The Annual Fund is one of the ways Denison alumni and other university supporters help fund the gap between tuition and what it it takes to give people. an education that shapes life.”

This is where student internships, after-school clubs, and interdisciplinary programs are funded. This is where professors with new ideas to bring to class and students facing unexpected emergencies go to seek help, including financial assistance.
