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 do this throughout the academic year by hosting events such as:
- Food Truck Friday
- Networking Seminars
- Beer and Wine Tastings
And can also be found attending and cosponsoring events around campus where we will be handing out Goucher swag and having exclusive perks for our donors. These events include:
- Athletic events
- Pub Nights in the GOHO
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 gift could help fund:
- aid for study abroad
- visiting lecturers
- improvements to campus facilities
So, how do I fit in?
Every little bit counts, 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. 86% of Goucher students recieve financial aid or scholarships
Ways you can help:
- Join the Gophers for Goucher committee and volunteer your time at events that spread the word about philanthropy
- Forgo that latte or burrito for ONE day and make a gift to Gophers for Goucher. YOU can make a difference and support what’s important to you: your sports team, your academic department or even make a gift in honor of your favorite professor, coach or someone else who has impacted your time here at Goucher.
- Stop by our Gophers for Goucher table or take part in one of our events to learn how gifts made before yours are impacting you every day and how your gift can also make a difference today and for future gophers.
I can make a difference right now?
Yes! Any contribution shows your support for Goucher and does have an impact. Visit Goucher College’s Giving page to give now! Last year students gave over $5,500 towards scholarships, athletics and academics. Be a part of that tradition and make your gift today.
How else can I get involved?
