Every gift matters at Elon.
No matter the size, every gift to Elon makes an impact on our students, faculty, staff and campus. Collectively, private support makes it possible for students to take full advantage of all Elon has to offer. Your gift matters. Make a contribution, and make an impact.
Support for one study abroad experience:
Support from Elon donors enabled Samantha Bellamy ’15 to study abroad twice, completing her Spanish minor and a fundraising internship in Costa Rica and helping local entrepreneurs in Kenya start their own businesses. Both experiences fostered her love for international development, the field she plans to pursue after graduation.
Support for one leadership experience:
Maria Restuccio ’15 has honed her leadership skills as executive director of Elon Volunteers!, the largest student-led organization on campus. In this role, she has helped organize 16 alternative break service trips and worked with more than 150 student leaders who are addressing issues such as affordable housing, food insecurity and education.
Support for one service experience:
Audrey Griffith ’17 received a service award that allowed her to participate in an alternative break service experience. She coordinated the spring break 2015 trip to Jamaica, where she was able to tutor children at the Sandy Bank Primary School.
For many students, private support helps fund scholarships that make an Elon education possible:
I come from a single parent household and am a first generation college student. I have had several people tell me that I wouldn’t be successful, but this scholarship is a testament of how you can defeat all odds and come out on top.
I have pushed myself to my limits these four years because I have been granted endless opportunity. Where talent and persistence led me, I could venture without hesitation.
