How your contribution can make a difference

We are grateful to the generous and supportive Gunn High School community and beyond, who want to make college a reality for an under-served, often first-generation college student from Gunn.  Your donation will provide an invaluable opportunity to our students to attend college with minimal financial burden, and are integral to our foundation’s fundraising efforts.

Support Gunn Foundation Scholarships

Your contribution will help us to meet the financial needs of the many deserving college-bound seniors at Gunn High School. The funds can be used to help with tuition, fees, books, transportation, and other financial impediments to achieving a college degree on a tight budget. Awards range from $500 to $3,500 per student.

Matching Program:

We participate in all employee match programs including Google and Apple (via Benevity).

You can also request a form from your employer to fill out and include ‘Gunn Foundation’ as the organization you’d like for them support on your behalf. Your extra step to make a match is truly appreciated.
