Each year, alumnae, families, and friends give between $5 and $100,000 to The Scripps Fund to support faculty, students, and the campus community. Giving a restricted gift to the fund allows you to support areas of the College that reflect your interests and priorities. See below on how you can support The Scripps Fund.
For more information about giving to The Scripps Fund, contact the Office of Alumnae Engagement and The Scripps Fund.
Support Scripps faculty and students in—and outside—of the classroom with resources for new course materials, travel funds, and research opportunities.
Campus Enhancement and Preservation
Preserve and protect Scripps’ historic campus buildings and grounds for today’s community and future generations to enjoy its beauty and serenity as was our founder’s vision.
Career Planning & Resources (CP&R)
Prepare Scripps students to navigate their lives after Scripps by supporting networking treks, career counseling, skill-building workshops, and more.
Immigration and Civil Rights Emergency Fund
As a sanctuary center of higher education, we aim for our campus to be a sanctuary where students, faculty, and staff are free from fears of deportation or persecution. Your support provides legal services and advice and student and family representation in court, helping individuals understand their rights.
Provide students with hands-on experience in their field of choice through paid internships. About 86% of Scripps students hold at least one internship, better preparing them for further education or careers after graduation.
Mental Health and Wellness Programs
Promote health, wellness, and safety among the Scripps community by providing our students with regular programming, enhanced resources, and mentoring.
Allow a deserving student the opportunity of saying yes to a Scripps education regardless of current financial situation
Study Abroad and Global Education (SAGE)
Expand our students’ experiences by allowing them to study, conduct research, and explore cultures beyond our own through the College’s popular study abroad program.
Help keep Scripps green through sustainability efforts on and off campus. Funding provides outreach and promotion of sustainability events and continued campus enhancements of low-drip irrigation systems and drought-tolerant plantings.
