Carry Bluffton Forward

This campaign ended on June 30, 2020, but you can still make a gift to Bluffton University by clicking here!

6/23/20 update:

We are just seven weeks away from welcoming students to campus for the fall semester, including the incoming Class of 2024! We continue to develop flexible plans for these students to live and learn in community this fall. Earlier this month I invited you to partner with us by making a gift to the Bluffton Fund. 

 At that time, I shared that a generous alumnus was matching all gifts to the Bluffton Fund dollar-for-dollar up to $150,000. I am pleased to share that as of the beginning of this week, we exceeded $150,000 in unrestricted gifts in June.

The generosity of Bluffton’s many alumni, parents and friends has inspired this generous alumnus to increase the matching funds available by an additional $25,000 for all gifts to the Bluffton Fund by June 30! If you have yet to make your gift this June to Carry Bluffton Forward, there is still time for you to double the impact of your gift and make a big difference for Bluffton students this summer.

6/9/20 original message:

Please come together and Carry Bluffton Forward with a gift to the Bluffton Fund to help Bluffton support our students and prepare for the 2020-21 academic year. Thanks to a generous Bluffton alumnus, all gifts to the Bluffton Fund this June will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $150,000.

Bluffton faculty, staff and students displayed amazing resilience as they completed the spring semester online and came together as a community in new ways during a time of uncertainty. We know COVID-19 will be a part of our reality for some time and faculty and staff are planning flexible approaches that will allow us to provide the high-impact learning experiences that are a hallmark of a Bluffton education.

 As we prepare for the fall semester with creativity and hope, we invite Bluffton alumni and friends to support our students and the university’s plans for the 2020-21 academic year.

 Your gift of any size to the Bluffton Fund will make a big difference for today’s students. Let’s come together and Carry Bluffton Forward into fall 2020 and beyond!
