Schools & Centers
Gifts to our academic programs make the difference to students like Ricca Baker, who chose J. Sargeant Reynolds because it offered an excellent program in business administration, was affordable and close to home.
By ensuring Reynolds' tradition of providing a quality education that is accessible and affordable, private support for the college’s academic offerings sustains the Reynolds in a number of ways:
Endowment funds support the development of new programs and schools
Outright gifts for curriculum development, updated facilities, and new technologies help create an optimal learning environment
Corporate and foundation gifts support faculty research and knowledge advancement
Unrestricted gifts to a program's discretionary fund provide flexible support for a variety of academic initiatives
