Defiance Fund

Your gifts to THE DEFIANCE FUND provide immediate benefits for all students. THE DEFIANCE FUND supports every aspect of a DC education -- financial aid, academic resources, enhanced technology, and unique learning opportunities that link the classroom to the real world.

Through THE DEFIANCE FUND, donors can direct their gifts to the program/department/project of their choice – from the cultural arts and humanities initiatives to the distinctive professional experiences being developed in each major, from music to athletics. Your gift each year, every year, allows Defiance College to provide a world of learning and opportunity for our students, within the nurturing small college academic experience.
