Gifts of Endowment
John Bagge Scholarship
Was John Bagge your baseball coach? Maybe he was your teacher, advisor, your basketball coach or your resident dean. Odds are that if you were at Landmark College in the last quarter century or so, you have a John Bagge story to tell. John retired from Landmark, and in honor of him and of the College's 25th anniversary, a group of alumni decided it was long overdue to honor this wonderful man who has meant so much to so many. Our mentor, our teacher and our friend, he saw the good in every young person, and in every instance we became better because of him. John had a quiet, easy way of calming any situation and bringing an unassuming brilliance to every problem. He was not one to get too upset or overly excited, except for the thrill of seeing you make it to class on time or finish the paper that had been haunting you for weeks. John has always been our tireless cheerleader, and now it is time we cheer a little bit for him. The John Bagge Scholarship Fund will give deserving students a leg up just like John has always done.
Alumni Endowed Scholarship
The Alumni Endowed Scholarship Fund, established by Landmark College’s Alumni Advisory Board in 2008, supports student success and opportunity by creating a permanent fund for scholarships, offering long-term relief for the rising costs of tuition that keeps many students from taking advantage of the unique educational opportunities offered at the College.
Supporting Landmark College's Alumni Endowed Scholarship Fund is a tangible expression of appreciation for the educational opportunities afforded its alumni. There are many and diverse ways to give to the Alumni Endowed Scholarship Fund at Landmark College. All gifts, regardless of size, contribute to further strengthening the College's unique and historical mission for students with learning differences.
Why is an endowment the gift that keeps giving?
Instead of the entire amount of the gift being spent outright, the total amount of the gift is invested. Each year, only a portion of the invested income earned is spent, while the remainder is added to the original principal. An endowment is a perpetual gift, because only the earnings are used to support Landmark College while the principal continuously grows.
Always equated with excellence and long-term strength, endowments are absolutely essential if Landmark College is to remain a leader in the education of students with learning differences. Supporting Landmark College’s John Bagge or Alumni Endowed Scholarship is a great way to link your legacy as a Landmark alumnus/a with the College’s future forever.
