The Pierce Annual Fund

The Pierce Annual Fund directly enhances the educational experience of every student on each of the five campuses by providing financial aid; books, magazines and online resources in the library; student leadership development programs; funds for visiting artists, speakers, and performers; Fitness Center equipment to promote healthy lifestyles; and career-oriented programs that provide students with an edge in the job market. Simply stated, a gift to The Pierce Annual Fund provides educational opportunities that change lives! The Pierce Annual Fund is the most direct way to financially support the mission of Franklin Pierce University. Every dollar donated to The Pierce Annual Fund is used to provide educational opportunities for current students which tuition and fees alone are not able to provide.

DID YOU KNOW?

Supporting The Pierce Annual Fund on a monthly basis is easy! You can make a gift in any amount you wish by:

  • Providing a credit card number so that a monthly debit can be made by Franklin Pierce, or
  • Making a monthly payroll deduction if you are a Franklin Pierce employee.   

For more information on how to establish either of these monthly deduction options,
please contact: Vicki Doyle, Director of Advancement Information Services, at

The Pierce Fund Trustees & Friends Challenge. Trustees and friends of Franklin Pierce University have generously funded a Challenge Incentive Fund designed to motivate constituents of the institution to make their first gift to the University, or to increase their gift.

Alumni, parents, friends, and employees who have never made a gift to the University will be able to have their gifts matched dollar for dollar (until the full amount of the Challenge Fund is subscribed). So for example, a new donor making a gift of $100 will be able to claim a matching gift of $100 and then be recognized in the Annual Report of Gifts for making a gift at the $200 level. Better yet, a first-time donor making a gift of $500 will be able to claim a matching gift of $500 and then be recognized as a member of The President’s Council.

Or, if you donated $100 last year and increase your gift to $150 this year, the Challenge Incentive Fund will match the increased portion of your gift dollar for dollar (until the full amount of the Challenge Fund is subscribed); you will be able to claim a matching gift of $50 and then be recognized in the Annual Report of Gifts for making a gift at the $200 level.

Be sure to take advantage of this exciting opportunity to extend the impact of your personal philanthropy to the University!
