The Gordon Fund

The Gordon Fund is a community fundraising effort that strengthens important programs and advances Gordon’s mission.

Support for the fund comes from current families, alumni, grandparents, parents of alumni, faculty, and friends.

Gordon prides itself on building a diverse community and our families represent a broad range of economic circumstances. While giving is voluntary, a gift to the Gordon Fund appropriate to your family’s means always makes a difference.

Join our effort this year to ensure Gordon’s talented professionals and students have all the tools they need to explore, innovate and learn.

Opportunities for investment in the 2018-2019 academic year are:
