Why Give?

The University of Akron has taken great strides in the past decade, due in large part to the generous donations of alumni and friends. The University has taken its rightful place on the map as a world class institution, and the Department of Economics competes with many great schools of economics. In order to continue our ongoing standard of excellence, we must attract and provide support for quality students. Please consider doing your part to help provide scholarships for these students with a gift to the Economics Department. Donations may range from $25 to any amount of your choice. Our goal is a lofty one. We hope to raise $100,000 to help our students accomplish their educational and career goals.
