The Oberndorf Lifeline to Completion Challenge
Learn more about this committed supporter of college completion
We are at it again! After the success of our first Oberdorf Lifeline to Completion Scholarship Challenge that established a $250,000 scholarship endowment, we accepted a second challenge to raise another $125,000.
Our benefactors Rosemary and Lou Oberndorf challenged us to raise another $125,000 that they will match one-to-one resulting in a total $500,000 endowment for the Oberndorf Lifeline to Completion Scholarship.
We know Phi Theta Kappans don't shy away from a challenge, so we're counting on you to help us meet this one.
