What Your Gift Can Do
- Provides about three weeks of childcare for a parent to attend class-- many of our students are over 25 (52%) and attend part-time (66%) due to financial or family demands.
- Roughly covers the cost of one three-credit class and required textbooks-- and is the minimum level for a scholarship named after a loved one or a company.
- Provides a monthly bus pass or full tank of gas to twenty students-- transportation to campus is a significant barrier to student success
- Funds a tool box for six trades and engineering students-- employers participate on advisory committees to ensure that what students learn in the classroom is what they will need to be successful in the workforce.
- Nearly covers a full year of tuition or some programs in full-- this helps students transition to the workforce even faster! 91% of students surveyed are employed within six months of graduation.
- Provides student emergency founding to roughly fifty students-- Short-term emergencies can permanently derail long-term educational plans for students struggling day-to-day.
$25,000 - $1 million
