Every one of our 270 students benefits from your gift to the Vistamar Fund (our annual giving program), a critical resource which impacts every area of our school. Tuition covers about 80 percent of the cost to educate a student. The remaining 20 percent is funded through endowment income and Vistamar Fund gifts. Income from the school’s endowment is restricted to specific purposes, so the flexible, unrestricted support the Vistamar Fund provides is vital. Gifts to the Vistamar Fund comprise 16 percent of our annual budget, and supports several priorities, including:
- Professional development for faculty
- Moderated Tuition
- Facility and equipment renewal
- New technology
- Diversity, wellness, and global education programs
The Vistamar Fund advances our mission to empower students, preparing them to contribute and excel in higher education and life.
