Frequently Asked Questions

Does my gift really make a difference?
Yes - in more ways than one!  Foundations look at giving percentages when considering larger gifts to the College.  Alumni participation in giving also has a direct impact on Grove City College’s rankings.  While Grove City College does not accept federal or state funding, it remains one of the nation’s premier values in quality higher education.  In light of these reasons, support from alumni and friends – at any gift level - is vital.

Doesn’t Grove City College have a huge endowment thanks to J. Howard Pew?

Contrary to what many believe, Grove City College does not have a large endowment from which it draws to offset day-to-day expenses.  Any gifts the College received from the Pew family after Mr. Pew’s death in 1971 came from The Pew Charitable Trusts and have been designated for special projects, not endowment funds.  Today, the Pew Charitable Trusts have many other interests, and while we are thankful for their periodic help, Pew giving represents a very small percentage of the gifts made to the College.


I spent years paying off my tuition – isn’t that enough?

Did you know that tuition dollars do not cover the entire cost of a Grove City College experience? Every student on campus benefits from the generosity of our alumni, parents and friends.  We rely on private donations—not federal or state funding—to fill the gap.



Is my gift tax deductible?

Grove City College is a charitable 501(c)(3) organization, and contributions may be deductible for tax purposes.  Please consult your tax adviser for details.
