Welcome back for the 2020-21 School Year!

Double your impact in August when donations will be matched by the Gunn Foundation Board of Trustees! The Class of 2021 will greatly appreciate your support! Scroll down to make your donation.

(donations up to $15,000 will be matched)

Since 1968, the Gunn Foundation has been providing need-based scholarships to college-bound Gunn High School seniors so they can further their education and secure their future.

Gunn Foundation scholarships are meant to bridge the gap on expenses — tuition deposits to secure a student’s admission spot, housing deposits, textbooks, and usage fees — that are often not covered by financial aid packages. Especially when these costs are due up front, a student from a family with little disposable income may not be able to attend the school to which they have worked hard to earn admission.

When you donate, you are making a real difference in the future of a student in our community. Your support, at any level, truly makes a difference.

We offer four ways to donate

At whatever amount you wish to support our students ($50, $100, $250, $500, or other), we offer four ways to donate. Three have no transaction fees. We are a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization (Tax ID: 94-6182158).
