The Gilchrist Memorial Scholarship

This campaign ends on August 20 at 11:59PM EDT

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s format to support the Gilchrist Brothers Scholarship has been changed to a virtual event on August 19 at 7 p.m. when we hope to announce the first recipient(s) of the Gilchrist Brothers Endowed Scholarship!

We can award the first scholarship(s) for the upcoming Fall semester with your help. We have a unique opportunity for your participation to help students more than ever. Several generous anonymous donors have pledged their support and offered to match donations dollar-for-dollar, up to $3,250.

Please consider making a gift today and carrying on the legacy of Brian and Michael Gilchrist. If each person who planned to participate or sponsor this year’s outing donated the equivalent of their ticket or sponsorship as a direct contribution, 100% of the money will go directly to the scholarship. In addition,
your entire gift would double due to the matching challenge.

Please help us reach our goal! Sponsors’ names and logos will be displayed during the virtual event.

The annual golf outing and other events for Columbus area alumni will resume on June 12, 2021 at Bent Tree Country Club. The proceeds of which will continue to go towards growing the Scholarship Fund.
