Each dollar donated to the Student Success Fund is spent twice; helping students in need, and helping the college maintain quality programs. Students get the vital support they need for tuition and books, and the funds stay on campus to support programs. Since launching the fund in 2013, the Foundation has distributed nearly $150,000 in emergency grants to help nearly 500 students in need.
