The Annual Fund is critical in helping Bard to maintain its tradition of innovation
and standard of academic excellence. Each year, the Annual Fund helps to provide
more than $29,000,000 in student scholarships, pay faculty salaries,
fund the purchase of new books for the library, and support the day-to-day
operations of the College.
The Annual Fund is comprised of unrestricted gifts that are made to Bard College
during the fiscal year, between July 1 and June 30. Gifts to the Alumni/ae
Fund and the Parents' Fund are included in the Annual Fund.
