Why Give

Not-for-profit Road Scholar is a university of the world for older adults. We create educational travel opportunities for older adults to learn, feel reinvigorated, meet new friends and expand their horizons.

Together, we are enriching the lives of lifelong learners now and for generations to come.

Your commitment to knowledge supports our mission to inspire adults to learn, discover and travel in the following ways: 

 Developing flexible adventures and curriculum for a broad range of learners

 Securing the best faculty of subject matter experts to ensure educational focus

 Piloting new learning adventures around the globe for deeper understanding of the world

 Expanding to new adult audiences who benefit from the journey of learning and connecting with others

 Funding scholarships and grants for recipients who lack financial resources or are caring for a loved one who is ill or disabled


“At this point in my life, I find joy in supporting things that matter to me and education is certainly one of them. I give because I want to ensure that Road Scholar is here for many generations to come.”
– Sarah H. from Pittsburg, Pennsylvania
