Why support the Annual Fund?
Walsh College is working to attract the best and brightest faculty and students, and to provide them with modern facilities and state-of-the-art equipment.
This work is expensive – tuition alone cannot cover these costs – and that’s why your generous annual support of the Walsh College Foundation Annual Fund is so important and appreciated. The Annual Fund offers unrestricted funds that the College can use at its discretion, or to fill gaps in funding, so that those costs are not passed along to students in the form of tuition increases.
The Annual Fund supports three main areas at Walsh College:
- Technological updates: Technology changes rapidly; Annual Fund support allows students to learn on current technology that they will use in the “real world”. The Annual Fund allows Walsh College to have a modern facility and up-to-date- technology that allows us to compete with other business schools.
- Physical improvement: The Annual Fund helps replace outdated and broken furniture in areas such as computer labs and classrooms, to provide a learning environment that is comfortable and without distraction.
- General scholarship support: Scholarships can be an important recruitment tool, attracting the best and brightest to Walsh College, while supporting deserving students who might otherwise not be able to afford an education. The Annual Fund ensures that scholarship students can receive uninterrupted awards for as long as they meet the scholarship criteria.

Walsh College is a private, not for profit school. Annual Fund support gives Walsh the means to deal with the daily, sometimes extraordinary, costs of running a College.
Walsh College has established Giving Societies to recognize those donors whose leadership gifts demonstrate a commitment to excellence.
