Responsive to Needs

Supporting Our Community in Extraordinary Times

Our community has learned so much together amid the challenges of COVID-19, rising to the challenge to continue providing access to high-quality education. Our "crowdfunding" initiatives created just-in-time giving opportunities to address just-in-time student needs. These funds draw support from a variety of donors and partners to address emergency student needs, support students who were already working on the front lines of the pandemic, and other strategic initiatives.
