Donor's Love Stetson, and we love our donors.

We are so grateful for the love that, during 140 years, donors have shown Stetson! Big-hearted donors like you help generations of students - including all five members of the Johnston family! - receive a transformative Whitworth education. Thank you

You help students so much. But did you also know you help their families? Through your gifts, you ease families' burdens by helping students to continue their education at Stetson University. Thanks to the donor's generosity, Stetson students remain connected to our supportive community when they need it most.
Now that's love in action.

Betty Johnson's story

Betty Drees Johnson

Betty Drees Johnson (59) woke one Saturday morning to learn a man named Far Tuttle from Stetson University was waiting in their living room to talk with her. "We had no phone, so he had driven over to say Stetson was offering me a full-tuition scholarship based on a test I'd taken earlier. That morning changed my life forever. Giving to Stetson is my way of saying thanks and paying it forward."
