Since 1968, 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, at any level, you are making a real difference in the future of a student in our community.
Our scholarships are meant to bridge the gap, covering expenses like tuition and housing deposits, textbooks, technology for distance learning, and usage fees, that are often not covered by financial aid packages. When a family has limited disposable income to pay these expenses up front, it jeopardizes a student's opportunity to attend the school at which they've worked hard to gain admission.
“My Gunn Foundation scholarship allowed me to continue pursuing higher education and opened a path towards success.”
— Fatima, 2018 Gunn Foundation Scholar
