About the Trustee Matching Fund

Initiated by trustee Jimmy I. Gibbs and his wife, Marsha, the Trustee Matching Fund encourages the establishment of endowed scholarships by providing a pool of dollars designated to match the scholarship gifts of alumni, parents and friends of Wofford College.

These endowment dollars serve as a key differentiator for Wofford among its peer institutions, attracting the best and brightest among its ranks. We invite you take advantage of this unprecedented matching opportunity and join our efforts to provide access to a superior, transformative liberal arts education through a gift for endowed scholarships.

Matching Opportunities

Matching Opportunities Chart

Matching opportunities are available at three levels, beginning at a commitment of $25,000. All matching dollars of this multi-million dollar commitment that are claimed will be credited to the scholarship fund of the endowed scholarship donor. If you’ve ever thought about establishing your Wofford legacy through an endowed gift, now is the time to act-- matching funds are limited.

The Importance of Scholarships

Ensuring the financial accessibility of the Wofford experience through scholarship support is our institution’s greatest challenge and most critical undertaking. Competition among colleges and universities for the world’s most talented students is fierce. Endowed scholarship dollars not only allow the college to remain competitive and selective in its recruitment practices, but also lessen the financial burden for superior students who choose a Wofford College education. Meet students whose Wofford stories are possible thanks to the generosity of others.
