College funding is one of the major concerns for student and parents in this day in time with the dwindling availability of federal funding for financial aid, the rising college cost, and the new calculations that are used for financial aid. In the end, students suffer from the gap in financial funding and the burden on the parents. Imagine the joy on a child’s face and the family jumping for joy after reading an acceptance letter from a University. Then a week later the admissions packet comes, including the full cost of attendance and the financial aid award letter. Financial aid awarded $4,000 but the total cost for the year is $18,000. The parents are responsible for paying the $14,000 gap, or the child will have to take out more student loans to which we know the damage and financial strain on the student that can cause in the long run. This is where our organization comes in.
We are a Fraternal Non-profit Organization who holds numerous fundraisers thoughout the year to raise funds for the deserving upcoming high school graduates who are in need of additional financial assistance. Last year the organization collected a little over $151,000 that was dispersed to the students who started college this past August. With the hard work of our team, we hope to do it again this year but even bigger and better. LETS MAKE THEIR COLLEGE DREAM A REALITY!
