How We Use Your Gift
Your gift to Emmanuel College is special. It is the foundation that helps us support our students and provide a quality, values-based education that is uniquely ours. Our needs evolve from year to year, but donations from our alumni and community supporters are generally used toward these specific areas:
- Student Financial Aid and Scholarships
- Clubs and Athletics
- Community Service Programs
- Campus Improvements
Direct your donation to any of these areas, or even particular programs.
Student Financial Aid and Scholarships
Did you know that the majority of Emmanuel students rely upon some form of financial aid or assistance?
Perhaps you were one of those students and understand firsthand the importance of financial assistance. Countless lives are changed by scholarships, and in more than a few cases, your contribution will make an Emmanuel education possible for students who otherwise would not be able to afford it.
The Spirit of Clubs and Athletics
College life is much more than just lectures to attend, books to read, and papers to write. It is also about sports and the extracurricular activities that help make us all well-rounded individuals – a key part of the Emmanuel experience.
For many students on our 16 NCAA Division III teams, it represents the pinnacle of their athletic careers. With your help, we can give our students the best chance at a winning season, no matter what their sport.
Service That Uniquely Challenges
Opportunities to give back to the community connect deeply with Emmanuel's mission. For example, our students have traveled to New Orleans for service work in the wake of Katrina, tutored Boston-area students, and assisted the Society of St. Vincent de Paul in Phoenix by serving meals to the homeless. Emmanuel students volunteer their time to these great causes, and with your help, we get them there. Your gift rebuilds communities and changes more lives than just those of our students.
Improving Our Campus
Even tradition-steeped institutions like Emmanuel need to keep up with the times to serve our students well. Your contributions help us ensure that Emmanuel students are learning with up-to-date equipment, that capital building and remodeling projects including greening initiatives on our campus can move ahead, and that our overall learning environment provides the challenges and learning opportunities our students need to prepare for the global world that awaits them.
