Who are we?
We are a group of students who provide philanthropic support to the college. We do so because we know that whatever we can afford to give—even if it's a few dollars—is significant.
Our mission is to educate the entire Goucher community, specifically the students, about the importance of philanthropy.
We can also be found attending and co-sponsoring events around campus where we will be handing out Goucher swag and exclusive perks for our student donors. We contribute to Goucher with our gifts of philanthropy because we know that every gift of support makes a difference at our school – no matter the size. We contribute because this community is important to us and we want to see it continue to thrive.
Our Gifts Support the Greater Goucher Fund
The Greater Goucher Fund is Goucher's giving fund which helps fill the gaps that tuition doesn't cover! Tuition covers only 55 percent of a Gopher education, and gifts to the Greater Goucher Fund help make up the difference. Your Gophers for Goucher gift helps fund:
- aid for study abroad
- visiting lecturers
- improvements to campus facilities
- everything that happens here on campus!
Make your gift today!
Every little bit counts and, as students, we're the most important part of the Goucher community. We're the reason 16,000 alums are so engaged in securing Goucher's future. 93% of Goucher students recieve financial aid or scholarships. Our gifts, no matter the size, signal our commitment to one another and to this community.
Making a gift is easy. Gifts can be made in cash, by check, or credit card using this link:
Student gifts can also be made using your Goucher One-Card. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
