Annual Giving

Impact of the Franklin Fund

With the majority of our students relying on aid to attend the college, the generosity of donors to the Franklin Fund is far-reaching. Tuition and fees provide less than half of the actual cost of educating a Franklin College student. The Franklin Fund is one of the few sources of income bridging the gap between what tuition provides and the total operating budget. Generous support strengthens the Franklin experience for all students.


Each and every member of the Franklin College family is invited and encouraged to support the Franklin Fund each and every year. Our donors are alumni — from the most recent graduating class to graduates of the late 1930s, alumni who attended but did not complete their studies at Franklin College, parents of current students, faculty and staff, community friends and corporate partners. The uniting factor is a commitment to investing in the success of current Franklin College students—at whatever level each donor is able.


Your gift — regardless of size — helps Franklin College continue to attract outstanding students with competitive financial aid packages and to sustain the emphasis on a liberal arts education that leads to real-world success.

As a Division 3 school, Franklin College is prohibited from awarding athletic scholarships. The Franklin Fund provides valuable need-based scholarships to our outstanding population of student-athletes, and to many other Franklin College students who pursue varied fields of interest.

Thank you for considering a gift to benefit Franklin College! Support from alumni, friends and parents like you has a positive impact on every aspect of the college. Your gift will help students, faculty and programs, as well as help FC become one of the best liberal arts colleges in the nation.

We invite you to celebrate our strong tradition of liberal arts learning, and to make an investment in the future of Franklin College.
