What inspires you? We believe that people give to CVA for reasons that are as varied and different as donors themselves. We understand you can be inspired by the moment or motivated by a series of events that compel you to give.
Your gift makes education attainable through scholarships, recruits and retains top faculty, and provides facilities that foster learning and creativity. By supporting CVA, you are also strengthening the vibrant art and design community in the Twin Cities. Please help to ensure that current and future generations of students realize their visions and dreams through a CVA education.
The cost of earning a college degree is rising. For students showing financial need, the typical financial aid package covers only a portion of tuition and fees. Most students rely heavily on loans to pay for their education. The College of Visual Arts must aggressively compete for the most talented individuals who receive offers of generous aid packages and tuition scholarships.
CVA is committed to recruiting and retaining the best faculty in all art and design disciplines, engaging artists, designers, and scholars fully committed to both their professional practice and to their significant role and responsibility as educators.
It is a priority to give our students the best resources available to pursue knowledge and gain skills for professional practice. This includes up-to-date facilities with the latest technology where students can develop, create, and evolve their passion.
Endowment gifts keep the CVA mission alive by ensuring a dependable, perpetual source of financial support. CVA depends on endowments to build and sustain a strong foundation of academic excellence for long-term growth.
