 Be the Connection



The goal of the campaign is simple: to help students achieve their educational goals. For many, a scholarship can make the difference.

Our employee giving campaign is our opportunity to show our support for and our pride in the work we do every day. Our investment sends a powerful message to community donors...that we believe in our organization's mission so much that we choose to invest our own funds to ensure its success.  Please consider becoming the connection between students and their future success by making a contribution to any of the following funds:​
