Your gift will make a difference
So far, we have over $100,000 in the fund from more than 250 generous donors and our matching donors. We have awarded 342 of our students totaling $80,000. Today, we have over 800 students who are in need and have submitted applications that we are continuing to review.
We want you to know that your gift will make a difference. This fund is helping students who are single mothers, international students, students who have lost their job and students who have had to find a new place to live. Check out our updates tab to read words from some of these students.
