You can make a difference during the Annual Christmas in July - Twelve Days of Giving Challenge celebrating the communities that made Phillips University special! The challenge is simple. There are two winners - the group that raises the most money and the group with the most participants! Ultimately, the real winners are the PU Legacy Scholars and the communities they serve.

Because of gift-giving from generous donors like you, $160,500 in scholarships ranging from $7500 to $8500 was awarded last year to 20 outstanding students so that they can attend a school similar to Phillips University. It’s scholarships like these that make the gift of education and a college degree possible.

Your gifts also support the leadership program and the Annual Leadership Conference. The year-round leadership program equips students to lead – giving the gift of service and leadership back to their communities. Thanks to you, these gifts of leadership are possible, and it’s gifts like these that make it possible to develop leaders that will transform the world.

For the past three years, YOU have helped us reach (and exceed) our goal. We’re excited to share with you that Phillips University Legacy Foundation has been offered a $50,000 matching gift. With your generous support, that means the Legacy Foundation has the potential to raise $100,000 as we seek to give the gifts of leadership, scholarship, and legacy this year and for years to come.

Will you help us continue to support these Legacy Scholars and make a real impact on their lives and the lives of those they serve? Click here to make a gift!

Over the twelve days we will celebrate daily a different school organization or community - including service clubs, the GDIs, PU athletes, as well as our former faculty, staff and administration. Each day we will also update which group has donated the most in helping us reach our goal and which group has the most members participating.
