Walls of Encouragement

We’ve created an opportunity for you to be a daily voice of inspiration and presence for our students. To participate, commit to a $2,500 gift to a particular endowment, payable over 5 years, and your name will be listed on that endowment wall in areas where students congregate and study. Our students will feel your presence and know your generosity every single day. Imagine a student passing a Wall of Encouragement before an exam or studying under the watchful “eyes” of their biggest supporters. This powerful message of “we’re here – we’ve got your back,” will help our students find the strength to pursue their dreams.
