Endowed Scholarship Challenge Match

An anonymous donor has pledged to match any new endowed scholarship commitment dollar for dollar.  Total matching funds available are $250,000 and are capped at $25,000 per commitment.  A minimum commitment of $12,500 payable over five years is required to establish a new endowed fund. 

The best way to ensure the financial stability of a program is through endowed scholarships.
