Your donations make a huge difference

We believe that talent and commitment – not the ability to pay tuition and fees – should open the doors to a college education. Private gifts in support of scholarships allow exceptionally able and worthy students to obtain a college education despite increasing cost. For many people, such gifts mean the opportunity to pursue their lifelong dreams through higher education.
