You can change lives through a new Gettysburg Fund unrestricted scholarship

A Gettysburg education would not have been available to many current students and alumni without the help of generous benefactors.

Financial support for students is one of the College’s highest priorities. Scholarships bring Gettysburg within reach of students from all backgrounds and ensure that we can compete for the best and brightest. Many alumni, parents, and friends have already established endowed scholarship funds.

Now, through the Gettysburg Fund, you too can help a student achieve his or her dreams. With a four-year pledge of $10,000 (a minimum annual gift of $2,500), you can create your own Gettysburg Fund Named Scholarship to be awarded to a current student.

Donors can build special relationships with students, beginning with an invitation to the annual appreciation luncheon. There may be no greater way for you to impact lives for the better and inspire generosity in future generations.

To establish your named scholarship, contact the Office of Annual Giving at 800-238-5528 or gettysburg_fund@gettysburg.edu
