Make a Gift

Whether it’s a transformational gift to a college or school, an endowment to establish a scholarship for a student, or an unrestricted gift to The Drake Fund, giving to Drake University is a rewarding experience on any level.

When you make a gift to Drake, you make a direct, significant contribution to Drake's vision for the future. This allows Drake to reduce its dependence on tuition income and to build a stronger financial foundation.
