Support that makes an impact

Caring for the Elon community in times of crisis

If you find yourself looking for ways to make a difference in this time of uncertainty, please consider making a gift to the Students First Fund. This new fund will provide resources to students who are at risk of not being able to attend Elon due to the negative economic impacts of COVID-19.

If you are in a position to support this effort at any level and would like to learn more about Students First, please visit www.elon.edu/studentsfirst.

Thank you for supporting Elon students during these trying times. Your generosity makes a world of difference.

An investment in changing the world

Elon students and alumni are making their mark around the world — delighting audiences from the stage, shaping young minds in the classroom, performing cutting-edge research in laboratories and working to address some of the world’s most pressing issues in areas of high need.

Your gift to Elon is an investment that helps make all of these things possible. Your support enables students to discover their passions as they work closely with faculty-mentors in a 24/7 residential learning environment. These experiences prepare students to lead lives of meaning and purpose, and every Elon donor shares in their success.

This spring, Elon launched Elon LEADS, a comprehensive campaign that allows the Elon community to come together to strengthen our university for generations. By investing in the transformative experiences and relationships that Elon inspires, we will empower students to reach their full potential and become leaders in their communities and in the world.

Through Elon LEADS, donors will build on Elon’s position as a leader in higher education by investing in graduates the world needs, engaged learning, mentors who matter and the university’s iconic learning environment.
