Alumni-Make a Gift

Why Support the College of Engineering?

The answer can be as personal as your co-op experience, your professors, or your Senior Design project. Or maybe you want to help the next generation of engineers succeed or honor your favorite professor or preserve your own legacy…..

As an engineering student yourself, you benefited from alumni, friends, faculty, staff, parents, and even a fellow student’s donation to the College. It may have been a scholarship; an enhanced academic program; lab equipment; a co-op opportunity; or a project competition like Concrete Canoe. 
Whatever the reason — you now have the chance to make an impact on today’s students through your personal philanthropy.

Why give to Drexel University College of Engineering? Because you now have the chance to give someone else the same opportunities you received!
The Power of Giving at Drexel University College of Engineering is in the heart and generosity of each engineering student, alumnus, parent, faculty member and friend who gives a gift every year.

Each one of our students has benefited from the generosity of the alumni who graduated before them. One gift — whether $5 or $50,000 — has a profound impact on the educational experience. Each annual fund gift is important and necessary every year.

Your Gift Can Help:

  • Fund a scholarship
  • Improve a lab
  • Send a student to an academic or specialty conference
  • Update academic programs
  • Support technological advances
  • Help complete a Senior Design Project

EACH GIFT, EVERY YEAR, is an essential part of the annual operating budget. Gifts to the College of Engineering Drexel Fund are current-use dollars that Interim Dean Giuseppe Palmese can apply flexibly to areas of greatest need. Restricted gifts — such as scholarship support — allow donors to designate all, or a portion, of their gift to an area of personal interest. 

Every dollar — given to Drexel University College of Engineering — every year — makes a difference.

Donations add up quickly. The average annual gift is $277 and gifts range from $5 to $20,000.
