Why Donors Make a Difference

In June 2017, more than 300 students participated in our graduation ceremonies. Students from all walks of life were in attendance—some young, some older, some alone, some carrying their infants across the stage—all smiling and proud of their accomplishments. Supportive friends, staff and faculty surrounded them during their moment of celebration, equally proud of their success.

Also in attendance and probably not as easily identified, were the dozens of donors who contributed to student scholarships. In 2016, our scholarship funds awarded over $600,000 to more than 200 students, with an average award of more than $1,600 was a contributing factor to student success.

For all our donors, rest assured that your funds went to students who received hope and encouragement from your gifts. Your support of education reduces the student financial burden and helps us all create a wiser, healthier and more enlightened community.
