The Doane Fund

This year Doane University will celebrate 150 years of academic and institutional success by leading, inspiring, and making an impact on our campus, communities and the world.  Resources are always needed to carry out these great ideas and help our students accomplish great successes.  This means bringing in students with potential to succeed and supporting them with scholarships, quality academic programs, student-centered opportunities, and state of the art technology and facilities.  These things help attract students to Doane…and help them succeed while here.  The Doane Fund is important in helping meet students’ needs today and to help us continue the Doane impact into future years.

The Doane Fund encompasses gifts that can be made and spent within one fiscal year.  Every year, loyal Doane Fund donors provide vital support to enhance the Doane University experience for our students.

You Can Help Continue the Experience

Our Alumni are living their own Doane Experiences out in the world now. Thanks to them and other friends of Doane, we can continue helping new students Earn Their Shields and start living Doane Experiences of their own.
