The Howard Chapel Campaign

The campaign for the Howard Chapel Renovation will support a 21st Century focus on spirituality and vocation at Barton College and will redefine this facility space as new construction complements renovation efforts. The renovated Howard Chapel will maximize opportunities for expanded academic and student life programs while providing an environment that promotes spiritual growth and vocational exploration.

Endowed Scholarships

The minimum for establishing an endowed scholarship at Barton is $20,000. The donor has the unique opportunity to design the scholarship in a way that best fits his/her personal interests and priorities. In normal economic times, the College draws five percent from our scholarship endowments to fund annual scholarship awards. This draw is governed by the Board of Trustees policy in accordance with state and federal regulations.

Annually Funded Scholarships

Establishing an annually funded scholarship is an option for donors who want to support student scholarship but are unable to make the upfront gift required to endow one. Rather than draw against endowed funds, the donor commits to making an annual gift in order to fund the scholarship while retaining the unique opportunity to design it in a way that best fits his/her personal interests and priorities. In order to provide an award sufficient to be of significant assistance to a student with their studies, a minimum annual gift of $500 is required.
