Advancing Our Future and Continued Growth

A Student's Journey Begins with a Generous Donor

Every philanthropic gift to Franklin Pierce, a nonprofit university, is a conscious choice to help change the lives of young women and men. Franklin Pierce has been a place of opportunity and new beginnings for students for more than five decades. The generosity of alumni, parents, friends, faculty, staff, corporations and foundations ensures that Franklin Pierce can fulfill its promise to our students today, while securing the future for those who will follow.

Your support helps to provide support for financial aid and scholarships for students, funds to expand and enhance academic programs, student life, athletics, technology, buildings and grounds improvements.

There are many ways to support Franklin Pierce and our students. Thank you for your support.
