Unrestricted Gifts

Unrestricted Gifts

When a donor chooses not to specify the way his/her gift may be used, this gift is called "unrestricted."  Unrestricted funds are a very powerful form of private support because they allow Blanchet to use them as it sees fit, where current (and often time sensitive) needs are greatest.  Unrestricted funds may be used for many kinds of assistance, including:

  • Student support
  • Faculty support
  • Books, collections and supplies purchases
  • Technological upgrades

Unrestricted funds are used to handle costs that other funding may not cover. Unrestricted funds provide a pool of available resources that can easily be directed to where they are needed most.

Please contact our Development Coordinator, Toni Nanneman at 503-391-2639 x240 to discuss unrestricted gifts.
