Dragon Fund

Dragon Fund


The Dragon Fund is a five-year, two million dollar plan to support projects and initiatives that are outside the regular operating budget.  All members of the community are asked to participate in the Dragon Fund as it directly impacts every program, department, student and faculty member by contributing to the School’s overall financial health and sustainability.  It is an annual giving campaign to address the school’s most pressing needs in four areas: Academics, Arts, Technology and Facilities.

CLA’s financial strength is dependent upon the participation of all members of its community. Your participation generates enthusiasm and encourages others to join you in supporting the school. Additionally, participation serves as a key indicator of broad support to foundation and corporate donors.

Thank you for your continued support of our school.
