On behalf of all of us at Ivy Tech, we wanted to express our sincere thanks to those of you who gave early in our campaign towards the COVID-19 Relief Fund. We are excited to announce we have raised over $42,000 from nearly 265 gifts across the state in less than a week! Each campus continues to raise funds towards their individual goals and are providing assistance to our students in their emergency needs. Things are ever changing, and many of our students are doing everything they can to stay enrolled at Ivy Tech.
We wanted to share a thank you that our Columbus campus received from a student who recently received $480 in relief support towards her tuition. This is just a glimpse of the collective impact all of your gifts are having in the lives of our students across the state.
"I wanted to reach out and personally thank you and the foundation for awarding an emergency scholarship to my account at this time. With the closure of many facilities I have lost my income and have been working towards finding a way to complete the final payment of this semester.
I am so grateful for your generosity, and I hope you and the rest of your members are healthy and well. This pandemic has been a complete surprise, as is the award you have given to me. Thank you again! Not only has this award brought financial support, but it has also brought me encouragement.
Thank you doesn't seem to cover the breadth of gratitude I have, but I hope you find it encouraging to hear the impact you are making in at least one life.
May you, your foundation, and donors have safety and health, and the opportunity to continue the good work you are doing." - COLUMBUS STUDENT
