Why Give?

Mathematics provides the foundational knowledge that is essential for science and engineering innovation. Increasingly, math is seen as essential for future developments in computer science, data science, business analysis and operations, materials design, medicine and finance, in addition to basic sciences.

We encourage you to direct your gift to one of these priority funds:

  • Summer Undergraduate Research Endowed Fund: Support undergraduate research projects in the summer. This fund currently has a dollar for dollar match for gifts given to this fund.
  • Innovation Fund for Mathematical Sciences: Gifts to this endowed fund support undergraduate research and capstone projects in mathematical sciences, the Math Club and other activities that enrich the undergraduate experience for mathematics majors and faculty recruiting.
  • Computational Finance Undergraduate Program Fund: Support expansion of our program including curriculum updates, summer research opportunities and student organizations such as QUANT club, sponsor alumni mock interviews and students attending national trading competitions
