Philanthropy creates possibilities at Towson University.
Gifts from alumni and friends provide our students with a distinctive education, challenging academic programs and life-changing opportunities that prepare them to succeed and make a difference is communities throughout Maryland and the region.
Financial aid makes a college education possible for 54.5% of full-time undergraduate students at Towson University, many of whom will be the first in their families to graduate with a four-year college degree. Privately funded scholarships can also reward students’ hard work and academic achievement. Few other philanthropic opportunities provide the satisfaction from knowing that you helped change a young person’s life forever with the gift of a college education.
With a difficult economy and reductions in state funding, gifts supporting academic excellence matter now more than ever. Towson University is committed to keeping the cost of a college degree as affordable as possible. Tuition and student fees have always fallen short from covering the full cost of educating a student. Philanthropic gifts help close the gap, so supporting the innovative academic programs and co-curricular activities that make a TU education distinctive provides the greatest return on investment.
