Students at Commencement


The Siena Heights Annual Fund provides the University each year with much-needed resources for student scholarships and financial aid, campus-wide technology upgrades and facility maintenance. In short, the Annual Fund ensures the livelihood of the university. By contributing to the Fund, you are giving Siena your vote of confidence as we continue our mission of assisting people to become more competent, purposeful, and ethical through a teaching and learning environment which respects the dignity of all.

Your gift may be restricted or unrestricted. Unrestricted donations allow Siena Heights University to allocate resources where they are needed most. The areas of need may change from year to year, but by giving an unrestricted gift you are helping the greatest number of Siena students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Make your gift now.

However, in some cases there might be an area that is of special importance to you. Gifts can be restricted to support a specific purpose such as student scholarships, athletics, the Kente stole program, academic departments or many others.
