    I wanted to share one last giving update and a special video 'thank you' with you.

    Because of YOU, Phillips University Legacy Foundation not only met our Christmas in July giving goal, but exceeded it!  While the campaign ended on Wednesday, July 17, we have continued to receive gifts in support of our mission to support undergraduate students with scholarship support and leadership development.

    As of yesterday we have received $27,242 in gifts!  This amount includes the generous $10,000 in matching funds.

Campaign Details

Christmas in July?  Why not!  Phillips University Legacy Foundation is celebrating the twelve days of Christmas (a few months early) and we want YOU - the alumni of Phillips University to celebrate with us.

Because of YOU and your generosity, the 19 college students in the Phillips University Legacy Scholarship and Leadership Development Program will graduate with significantly less debt than many of their peers. 

Your gift helps Phillips University to live on through these excellent college students chosen to be Legacy Scholars.  

The MISSION of the Phillips University Legacy Foundation is to follow the tradition of Phillips University by providing scholarships and opportunities to educate and develop leaders who embody Christian values in their lives, service and work.

You know firsthand the value of an excellent undergraduate education like the one you received at Phillips.  You are invited to help "pay it forward" to those students who want a similar college experience.

Our twelve days of giving goal is $20,000. (As an added Christmas in July gift - the first $10,000 dollars given will be matched by an anonymous donor - dollar for dollar.)

The Foundation's Legacy Scholars program offers scholarships and leadership development training to outstanding full-time undergraduate students pursuing a liberal arts education at colleges and universities currently or historically related to the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Scholarship awards, which can be as high as $7,500 per academic year, are based on academic achievement as well as past, present and potential leadership in their church, community and academic environments.

Your generous gift of $25, $50, $100 or $1,000 will help these students further develop their leadership gifts and allow them to reduce the cost of their education.

During these 12 days of Christmas in July, you are invited to join with your fellow Phillips University classmates to help us change even more lives. 

Here's how you can help us reach our goal. 

It's simple. Between July 6 and July 17, just choose a PU icon square on the Giving Grid wall. Make your gift of $25, $50, $100 or more. Then follow the directions to add your face to the Christmas in July wall of giving by uploading your favorite photo.

About the organization

The VISION of the Phillips University Legacy Foundation is to provide and sustain a premier scholarship and leadership development program for scholars attending institutions of higher education that are currently or historically related to the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
