Butler Fund

picture of butler student and quote

My dream of attending Butler became a reality because alumni and friends chose to give back—The Butler Way.

The Butler Way means something different to everyone. To some it may embody the spirit of Butler’s athletic teams, prestigious arts programs, or distinguished academics. To me, The Butler Way represents the blue give badge that links to giving formendless opportunities that await students during their time on campus because of the selflessness and generosity of donors like you.

I have known since fourth grade that I wanted to attend Butler University. However, as a student paying for tuition myself, I realized that a Butler education is a big investment. Without the scholarships made possible by donor gifts, Butler would not have been an option for me.

My experience on campus has been amazing – it is the home I had always imagined. I am supported by my professors, challenged in the classroom, and have created lasting friendships. I am so grateful for the generous donors who believe in student success and are making my story possible.

Please make your gift today so that more students like me can experience The Butler Way.

With gratitude,
