Types of Giving

Unrestricted Giving
Your unrestricted gift provides immediate support for our mission by funding operating needs and helping to sustain Cranbrook as a community where education is prized, the human spirit is nurtured, and innovation and creativity are valued. 

Endowment and Capital & Special Projects
You may also choose to direct your support toward a specific purpose that matches your interests with the needs and priorities of Cranbrook. These gifts ensure a strong permanent endowment, provide financial support for our artists and students, help to build and maintain campus facilities, and sustain a comprehensive range of creative and educational programs and experiences.
