Not happy with your tax return this year? Charitable contributions are a great way to make a significant difference for the College of Communication and Information while also lowering your taxable income. One way to give to the college is to make a gift to the College Fund. This will help the college continue to fund critical programs. As state allocations decrease, gifts to the College Fund are of utmost importance to allow the college to provide students with programs of the highest quality and to support faculty excellence as we continue to build a top tier College of Communication and Information.
