Student Emergency Grant Fund

Empowering our students to thrive!

Student Emergency Grant Fund

Our Mission

  • The Seth Nelsen Student Emergency Grant Fund exists to support students experiencing a situational financial burden that may impact their ability to remain enrolled. Emergency situations included: medical bills, transportation issues, rent assistance, and replacement of required school supplies like text books. 

Last year we made strides because of the generosity of people like you!

  • We assisted 55 students with emergency expenses
  • 100% of participating students remained enrolled

There is still more work ahead

  • With the rising cost of living, requests are expected to increase. Your donation can help ensure that, one day, we can overcome all of life's challenges together.

  • You can support one, two, or all three. Split your contribution at check-out.

Give in honor of a loved one and we'll send them a holiday card! 

  • Did you know that many people prefer to have a gift made in their honor than receive a present? It's true!
