Give to Drake

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. Your gift is a testament to your spirit of philanthropic leadership and serves as a visible symbol of your belief in private higher education and your passion for Drake University.
