Opportunities for Support

Help in a way that's most meaningful to you

There are many ways to support College of DuPage and our students. Donors may consider supporting:

  • The endowment fund provides flexible funding to meet COD’s greatest needs now and in the future.
  • Scholarships for tuition, books or student emergencies, including general scholarships and those with specific criteria. For example,some scholarships focus on academic achievement. Others focus on a program or major. Still, others focus solely on student needs.
  • Affinity areas to support a particular area of study, student activity, or profession.
  • Teaching awards to help recruit and retain faculty and reward them for excellence in the classroom.
  • Facilities or equipment to ensure that COD students and faculty are always working in real-world environments.
  • Experiential learning, to assist students who want to learn by doing.
  • Cultural programming to support performances, exhibits, radio broadcasts, and more.
