Click on a question below to learn more about Giving to Robertson Scholars.

Why is the RSLP fundraising? Is something wrong with the program’s funding?

Absolutely not.  Through the continued generosity of the Robertson Foundation, the RSLP is fortunate to be on firm financial footing.  This is a chance for Alumni, Scholars and parents to demonstrate their continued commitment to the RSLP and to co-invest with Julian in the RSLP’s mission of raising up transformational leaders committed to the RSLP’s values of purposeful leadership, intellectual curiosity, strength of character, and collaborative spirit.

When I give to the Robertson Program, where does my money go?

Your donation enriches the definitive Robertson experiences and strengthens the alumni network through the first-year NOLS retreat, the Community Summer, Dinners for Eight with faculty and alumni, the Senior Capstone, and other leadership development experiences. With your ongoing financial support and continued input, these experiences will continue to connect the ever-growing Robertson network.

What’s the best way to give to the Program?

The best and easiest way to give is to set up a recurring monthly gift right through the RSLP website.  This will allow the RSLP to have a continuous stream of support to fund ongoing programming needs.

Are gifts to the Robertson Program tax-deductible?

Yes!  The Robertson Scholars Leadership Program is a registered 501c3 organization and your donation is tax deductible as permitted by law.

What are other ways I can give back to the Program in addition to giving financially?

We’re glad you asked.  The RSLP is always looking for alumni to mentor current scholars, to coordinate regular alumni activities, and to support annual programs like Robertson Reconnect and the Senior Capstone.  If you’re interested in any or all of these, shoot a quick email to Stephanie Keller at and she’ll get you set up.

Is there any new programming that my contribution may support?

Check out the Program Timeline here - quite a few things have been added over the years - Sophomore Retreat and the Rethink Program, for example! Additionally, year after year the number of Dinners for Eight that Scholars host (and the Program pays for) is increasing, and the demand for LEAD grants (funding for conferences and seminars) has seen a huge surge in recent years. We know the undergraduate experience is just the start of a life-long leadership journey and continue to grow the power of the alumni network.
