The Sage Fund for Excellence

The Sage Colleges depend on two primary sources of income in order to operate:

Tuition Revenue and Philanthropic Contributions.

While some donors may restrict their gifts into endowed funds, contributions to
The Sage Fund for Excellence, Sage's Annual Fund, are essential because they immediately impact Sage's ability to serve its students every year.

The Sage Fund for Excellence supports:
  • Scholarships and Financial Aid
  • Curriculum Development
  • Faculty Resources
  • Student Enrichment Programs
  • Technological Resources
  • Campus Renovations
  • Innovative Academic Programs
  • Low Student-to-Faculty Ratio

Your annual gift to The Sage Fund provides vital support for current and future students. Alumni participation, at any level, is taken into consideration by the U.S. News and World Report when ranking colleges nationally. Alumni participation is also a key factor in gaining corporate and government grant funding to support unique college initiatives.
