Why Give

Why give to Gordon?

Gordon is a place where the whole has always been greater than the sum of its parts—and broadly described as the Gordon Experience. The same is true of giving to Gordon College. Every gift matters. Whether $1,000, $50 or $10, when added up, collectively each gift helps us to deliver the exceptional experience students expect from a Gordon College education. Your gifts help our students and faculty in countless ways.
