The Impact of the Glanton Fund

The Glanton Fund supports Des Moines University’s goal to create a campus environment that encourages an appreciation for the cultural differences that exist in society and attracts students of all backgrounds to be part of the university and the greater Des Moines community.

The fund generates scholarships for students with significant financial need with preference given to those whose qualities best align with DMU’s mission and values. The fund is also used for programming related to diversity initiatives.

The Glanton Fund: By the Numbers

Over $5.3 million total endowment
More than $3.2 million awarded to students
All 1,527 enrolled students impacted last year
