“The Gunn Foundation scholarship allowed me to continue pursuing higher education and opened a path towards success.”

— Fatima, Gunn Class of 2018

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.
