How to Help: During this time, we need your help more than ever as we try to support our students and our families with unexpected costs related to COVID-19.


We need unrestricted gifts to respond to the needs of our students and families over the coming weeks. Some of these needs might include: 

  • Technology – About 1/3 of our students lack the technology at home to participate in online classes. We are working with families to remedy that. 

  • Food – The families we serve are especially at risk for lost wages and food insecurity. We anticipate helping families to purchase food. 

  • Moving/Travel Expenses – Many of our graduates had to leave college campuses with little notice. We are working with graduates to help them cover some of these unexpected costs.

  • Online Learning Tools – We are working with several different tech tools and learning platforms to provide our students with the best online learning environment that we can.
