Bluffton Fund

Supporting Great Teaching and Learning

Annual gifts to the Bluffton Fund provide vital support for great teaching and learning and for the university’s core mission and enduring values of discovery, community, respect and service.

A Meaningful and Relevant Student Learning Experience...

Each year, alumni and friends contribute essential support for student financial aid and faculty salaries and for the rich array of academic and co-curricular programs that make up the total Bluffton experience. For many students, the scholarship support provided by the Bluffton Fund makes their attendance possible. To achieve our goal, annual support for operations must total $1.1 million or greater each year during the course of the campaign for a total of $5.5 million.

PROVIDING ESSENTIAL SUPPORT FOR GREAT TEACHING AND LEARNING, INCLUDING:

  • Academic programs

  • Student life
  • TEAM Bluffton (athletics)

Approximately 40% of Bluffton Fund gifts help fund student financial aid and 60% provides support for the total educational program.
