Create a Named/Endowed Scholarship
When you create a named/endowed scholarship at Phillips University Legacy Foundation, you give the gift of education and provide critical assistance for talented students who are selected as Legacy Scholars. Endowed scholarship funds start with a minimum gift of $200,000, which provides a scholarship for one Legacy Scholar each year. Endowed scholarships are invested in their entirety, and the scholarship is awarded from interest earned. To create a named or endowed fund, contact J. Gottman, Director of Development, at 580-237-4433, or Email Him.
Employer Matching Programs
There are many employers that offer matching programs for current as well as retired employees. It could be a 1:1 ratio or more and it can multiply your giving impact. To add an employer matching program to your donation, contact J. Gottman, Director of Development, at 580-237-4433, or Email Him.
