GIVE TO RSLP

Giving back to the Robertson Program is not only about recognizing the unbelievable opportunities given to our Scholars and Alumni; it’s also about recognizing the important role of creating these opportunities for future scholars!

Funds will be used to enrich the definitive Robertson experiences —things like the first-year NOLS retreat, the Community Summer, Dinners for Eight with faculty and alumni, and the Senior Capstone.  With your ongoing financial support and continued input, these experiences will continue to grow and push current and future Scholars to expand their horizons and meet their potential.

One time donations or monthly recurring gifts are possible through our online giving portal. There are many ways to give, including your time, talent, and treasure. Please take a look at our Giving page for more information on giving back to RSLP!
