Establish a Scholarship

For many students, college is not an option without the assistance of a scholarship. Consider creating a lasting impact on a student’s future by establishing a new scholarship or donating to a current one.

Establish an Endowed Scholarship

Endowed scholarships enable you to leave a legacy and a scholarship in perpetuity. A minimum donation of $10,000 is required to endow a fund at the Butler Foundation. The principal is invested, and a portion of the return is used every year to support the scholarship. Please see the Resources page for more details and frequently asked questions about endowment.

Establish an Annual Scholarship

Annual scholarships provide a yearly award to students who meet the criteria determined by the donor and the college. The scholarship may be established with a one-time gift and the awards are made until the funds are diminished. Donors may contribute the amount of the award every year. A one-time only scholarship is also an option.
