Gifts for Scholarships
More than 80 percent of George Fox’s traditional undergraduate students receive some form of financial aid, much of which is provided by generous people like you. Join students on their journeys through giving to:
A gift of $25,000 or more can establish a permanent scholarship fund that bears the name of the donor or another person the donor wishes to honor. Monies given to an endowed scholarship are invested with the university's endowed scholarship funds, with a percentage of the annual income generated used to support the student recipient(s). The donor may help set specific criteria for annual student recipients, who are chosen by the university.
A donor who commits to give $1,000 or more for at least five consecutive years may choose to establish a scholarship that bears the name of the donor or another person the donor wishes to honor. The donor may help set specific criteria for annual student recipients, who are chosen by the university.
The Act Six leadership and scholarship initiative equips emerging urban student leaders to serve and lead on the George Fox campus and to return to their neighborhoods as agents of change after college. Since the fall of 2007, George Fox has annually offered full-ride scholarships to a multicultural group of about 10 students from high schools in the Portland metro area.
Gifts of any size can be contributed to a general scholarship fund that provides essential scholarship assistance to current students. While these funds are unrestricted in nature and no individual recipients are named, gifts to this fund significantly lessen the tuition burden of many students.
