Where Your Gift is Needed

When you give a gift to the Department of Communication Studies, you have the choice of designating it for a particular use. For example, you might wish to contribute to a particular scholarship fund or designate a particular project or event the department is supporting. You also have the option to give a general gift for the department to use where it is most needed. Either way, your generous gift will be used to benefit students in the communication studies program.
