Why Give to Scholarships
To Change Lives for the Better
What better investment can any of us make than supporting the hopes and dreams of a young person? For students who can't afford a college education, the future can look bleak. But you can make a life-changing difference with a gift to scholarship aid.
To Create a Better Learning Environment for All Students
On a college campus, some of the most lasting learning experiences take place outside the classroom, when students interact with people from different racial, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds. The more diverse the student body, the better the learning experience for all students.
To Strengthen the College
By contributing to scholarship aid, you lessen the need for the College to dip into operating funds to provide financial assistance to students.
To Set an Example
We've seen it over and over again. The student who receives a scholarship today becomes the donor to a scholarship tomorrow. Your gift can establish a chain of philanthropy that extends far beyond your lifetime.
To Make a Gift That Lasts
With an endowed scholarship, you can create a fund that is invested each year, producing annual income used for scholarship aid. The principal remains intact, ensuring that the fund continues in perpetuity.
