Capital & Endowment Giving

Building a College

Building upon Franklin & Marshall’s standing as a national liberal arts college of exceptional merit requires extensive resources. Capital and endowed gifts provide a reliable source of income that allows the College to continue investing in the excellence of its campus, as well as academic enrichment for faculty and student.

These investments enhance the College’s commitment to excellence in undergraduate liberal education by:

    • Supporting financial aid for talented students of modest means
    • Recruiting a diverse, international student body and extraordinarily talented faculty
    • Expanding resources for student-athletes, collaborative research opportunities for faculty and students and the ongoing beautification and expansion of F&M’s historic campus
    • Capital and endowed gifts can be unrestricted or designated for a specific purpose. Regardless of how you choose to give, your generosity makes a tremendous impact on the life of the College.
