Annual Fund

Reinhardt University Annual Fund

What is the Reinhardt Annual Fund?

The Reinhardt Annual Fund is the foundation of all charitable funded support for the University. Each year, thousands of alumni and friends contribute to The Reinhardt Fund, ensuring that the University continues to bring quality educational opportunities to almost 1,300 students enrolled at Reinhardt.

Annual giving is important to Reinhardt for many reasons. Specifically, annual gifts are unrestricted, which means your gift can go directly to the areas of greatest need at the University, helping address unexpected issues and capitalize on breaking opportunities. Moreover, annual giving is just that – annual. By making yearly contributions to the Reinhardt Annual Fund, alumni, parents and friends provide a necessary stream of academic and student support.

If you are wondering if your gift will make a difference at Reinhardt, the answer is simple: ABSOLUTELY! Every gift to the Reinhardt Annual Fund, no matter the amount, makes it possible for our current and future students to receive a transformative educational experience.


Where Does the Money Go?

The Reinhardt Annual Fund touches virtually all facets of the University. Without it, none of the educational opportunities that our students are afforded would be possible. Here are some examples of where the Reinhardt Annual Fund impacts our students and faculty:

  • Providing scholarships for students
  • Funding undergraduate research opportunities
  • Purchasing state-of-the-art laboratory equipment
  • Creating life-transforming service-learning opportunities
  • Expanding employment opportunities for students/alumni
  • Strengthening our innovative academic programs
