Million Dollar Match

Elizabethtown College’s Million Dollar Match is the most significant fundraising match in the institution’s history, offering the opportunity for 20 first-time endowed scholarship donors to build a lasting legacy and open doors to higher education for future generations of Etown students.


Thanks to a $500,000 challenge fund provided by Bob Dolan, David Hosler ’72 H'10, Jan Lane ’75, Ed Lovelidge ’82, Jim Shreiner ’73 G’24, and the estate of the late Martin Heilman ’63, Etown will match new $25,000 scholarship commitments, dollar for dollar, to create $1 million in funding to support student scholarships.


This remarkable matching opportunity will help aspiring Etown donors create much-needed permanent endowed support and, most importantly, increase access to a transformational Etown experience.

Endowed Scholarships at Etown

An endowed scholarship is a sustainable fund that grows over time and is awarded annually to qualified students.

  • Endowed scholarships can be personalized. Some donors have created endowed scholarships in their own names, while others have created scholarships that honor family members, beloved professors, colleagues, or friends.
  • Endowed scholarships offer varied areas of support, from need-based aid through academic programs to international opportunities and beyond.
  • You can select preferred criteria for students who will benefit from the scholarship award, including financial need, a selected major or minor, a specific geographic area, or even a recipient who is a first-generation college student.
