Foundations play an integral role in the success of the University and its students. Without foundation scholarships, many deserving students would not have the opportunity to attend Stetson. Foundation grants also help faculty and staff pursue innovative research projects. Students have access to exceptional technology and equipment, thanks to foundation donations. Foundations fund programs that provoke thoughtful discourse and challenge students to explore new ways of looking at the world by sponsoring lecture series and events.
Scholarship donors are invited to meet their scholars at an annual scholarship luncheon. In addition, they receive scholarship reports from Stetson University and correspondence from their scholars. Foundation gifts are listed in Stetson University's Annual Donor Report.
Foundations are among the University's most loyal supporters.
