The Mary Tourney Emergency Book Fund

  • Capital Projects

    Always Improving Our University

    Stevenson University seeks support to complete projects that keep our grounds, classrooms, dorms, and other facilities up to date for our students, faculty, and staff.


Many Stevenson students can’t keep up with the soaring cost of textbooks. While our students have the drive to succeed in their classes, many are at risk to fall behind their classmates simply because they can’t afford to buy the required books.

The Mary Tourney Emergency Book Fund helps solve this problem. Established in 2003, it provides Stevenson students the financial support they need in order to purchase their textbooks.


Make Your Gift

You can help our students by making a gift to the Mary Tourney Emergency Book Fund today.

Each year, many alumni, faculty, and staff contribute to the fund. With your gift to the Mary Tourney Emergency Book Fund, you can help more students get the books they need to learn. 

As a Book Fund supporter, we will engrave your name on a plaque outside of the campus bookstore on the Greenspring Campus. There, students can see that you and many members of the Stevenson University community support their education.

About the Mary Tourney Emergency Book Fund

The Mary Tourney Emergency Book Fund was established by retired Professor of Human Services Dr. Gigi Franyo-Ehlers. She saw firsthand the difficulties students in her classes faced when they couldn't afford to purchase their textbook. Dr. Franyo-Ehlers named this fund after her mother, a teacher who knew that having the right tools was critical for students to learn.
