Garrett College Foundation

The Garrett College Foundation, Inc. was founded in 1982, recognizing the myriad needs for students and the communities in which we serve. As an independent non-profit 501(c)3 corporation established to receive and administer funds to further the educational opportunities and the educational environment of Garrett College, the Foundation pursues individual and organizational gifts and grants in support of scholarships, student and faculty development, special programs and capital projects.

Campaigns & Notable Gifts

'The Campaign for Garrett: Realizing our Dream'

Garrett College STEM Facility

Recognizing that technology and equipment have a short life span, the Garrett College Foundation recently launched the most ambitious fundraising campaign in the history of the College, ‘The Campaign for Garrett: Realizing our Dream”, with a goal of raising $500,000 for technology and equipment, as well as STEM scholarships.

GC has already raised close to $300,000 of the $500,000 goal during the pre-launch stage of the campaign.

The Foundation recognized major donors who have made an investment towards the campaign by naming a room or space in the STEM building. Donors were announced at the facility’s grand opening celebration on September 8th.
