Bold Visions Need Bold Partners
From our very founding, Butler University has relied upon visionary philanthropists to help carry out our mission. Throughout our history, bold partners have paved the way for the Butler University we know today through generous gifts of time, talent, and treasure. Giving back has always been part of The Butler Way.
Butler Beyond is a bold vision for a new model of higher education that combines tradition + innovation—the very best of our past + our brightest ideas for the future. But bold visions can’t be realized without bold partners. We encourage you to consider your passions and where you want to get involved in moving Butler Beyond.
There are many ways you can contribute to Butler Beyond. Gifts can be made through check, credit card, electronic funds transfer, stocks & securities, and donor-advised funds. You can also make a contribution through a planned giving commitment. And keep in mind that if you’ve already made plans to include Butler in your estate but have not yet informed us, now is the perfect time to let us know so we can acknowledge your generosity and ensure your commitment is included in the total for Butler Beyond.
