Giving to Endowed Scholarships


The strength of a great educational institution relies upon several factors: a challenging curriculum; accomplished faculty; dynamic students; excellent facilities; a beautiful campus; sound fiscal policies; and loyalty of alumni, parents, and friends.

But nothing is more critical than a strong endowment. This permanent provision of support ensures the life of the institution-that future generations of students will also benefit from a Pomona education.

As the endowment grows, the College can increase its present strengths and secure an exciting future.

The endowment supports:

Memorial Funds
