Your gift. Your choice.
Introducing The Eckerd Fund, a way of giving that illustrates the powerful impact of the collective generosity of alumni, parents and friends, in areas where the College needs it most—year after year. Support the College’s mission by choosing what speaks to you. Together, we can change lives.
The Eckerd Fund is like an umbrella covering the College’s greatest needs in a given year. Whereas gifts to individual sports, building projects, endowments or specific programs are limited to those initiatives, gifts to the Eckerd Fund provide unrestricted support that the College can apply to any priority, from faculty recruitment and development to cutting-edge educational technology.
In fact, most of the Eckerd Fund finances annual student scholarships, assisting the 96% of our students who receive financial aid. Under the Eckerd Fund umbrella are various crowdfunded annual scholarships for Study Abroad, Athletics and specific collegia including Natural Sciences, Behavioral Sciences and Creative Arts—or you can create your own named annual scholarship with a $5,000 contribution. You may also let the College choose where your gift of any size will have the strongest effect by giving directly to the Eckerd Fund.
Whether to the Eckerd Fund in general or one of its scholarship programs, gifts of $1,000 or more ($500 or more for Eckerd graduates of the last decade) qualify donors for recognition as one of our key leadership supporter.
