The Art of Giving

the art of giving vibrant!

The Evergreen State College Foundation in partnership with alumni, donors, friends, and businesses generously gave $433,251 for student scholarships!  

Supporting a vibrant future

In April, The Evergreen State College Foundation announced ambitions to raise $300,000 through the Art of Giving to fuel the Evergreen Scholarship Fund. To accomplish this, we embarked on an ambitious four-week virtual scholarship drive on April 12 to raise $50,000 followed by our first in-person Art of Giving gala in two years on May 12. And to top it all off, we celebrated Evergreen’s 50th anniversary! We’re grateful for your help in making this year special in so many ways.

About the Art of Giving 

The Art of Giving is The Evergreen State College Foundation’s annual fundraiser, bringing donors, alumni, friends and businesses together to celebrate student potential and build support for transformational scholarships at Evergreen. This fundraiser helps ensure that students can stay in school, earn their degrees, and contribute to the vitality of our region and our world. Proceeds from the Art of Giving bolster the College’s ability to support first-generation college students, students of color, veterans, adult learners, and other populations who face barriers to pursuing an outstanding liberal arts education.
