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. 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.
Gunn Foundation scholarships help bridge the gap for expenses that are often not covered by financial aid packages. On short notice, students often need to pay a tuition deposit to secure their admission spot. Expenses like housing deposits, textbooks, usage fees, transportation, or a laptop to replace the district-issued Chromebook are necessities for which many families do not have extra disposable income. Lacking funds for these expenses can prevent a student from attending the school to which they worked hard to earn admission.
“The Gunn Foundation scholarship allowed me to continue pursuing higher education and opened a path towards success.”
— Fatima, 2018 Gunn Foundation Scholar
