blue give badge that links to giving formMany service-minded students like Hannah are only able to consider Butler as a viable option because of the Butler-funded scholarship support, such as the Dr. John Morton-Finney Leadership Award. Last year, Butler provided over $77 million in financial assistance – but only $3.1 million was funded by donor support. Our goal for Butler Beyond: The Campaign for Butler University is to double the amount of donor-funded scholarships provided to Butler students by 2022.

Your annual contribution to the Butler Fund for Student Scholarship will help make this goal a reality, benefiting more students like Hannah. Please make your gift today.
