While the costs of providing a top-tier academic program along with operating a full cattle ranch are substantial, Deep Springs charges no tuition or fees to students attending the college. Staff and faculty salaries, lodging and student housing, utilities, infrastructure and maintenance all add up. To see details of our annual expenses and revenue, check out our most recent Annual Report or visit the Publications page to view back editions of the report.
To cover these costs, we rely on endowment income and annual contributions from alumni, friends, family and foundations. You can take part in Deep Springs’ tradition of purposeful scholarship by contributing, regardless of whether your gift is large or small. Your investment in Deep Springs is an investment in progressive education. The integrity of the institution and its ideals allow students to receive unmatched preparation for future leadership and service to humanity.

In order not to limit the decision-making of the Trustees, it has been the policy of Deep Springs since 1996 not to accept donations that are restricted to support of any particular admissions policy. We will respectfully decline any donations restricted to the support of coeducational student bodies exclusively, or to the support of single-sex student bodies exclusively.
