Making a Difference!

December 22nd, 2014

Dear College Success,

We want to thank you for your support of college success this year!

In part due to your generosity, College Success Arizona was able to award total scholarship funds of $1,750,500 in 2014 that provided college access to more than 384 Arizona students.

In addition to our scholarship program, we created another opportunity to support college success last year that you may not know about yet. Our new Scholar Emergency Fund supports students who, through no fault of their own, experience unexpected expenses that can knock them off the college graduation track.

Consider this story:
During a regular campus visit with her success adviser in her final year of school, a College Success Arizona scholar disclosed that she was in an abusive relationship with her son’s father. She wanted to move into a place where she and her son could be safe. The student had a place to move to, but now needed transportation to get to school every day. Through the Scholar Emergency Fund, College Success Arizona provided a transportation pass that enabled this student to take the bus or light rail to ASU for the entire academic year until she graduated.

Every time the Scholar Emergency Fund is used, it is likely to save a student from dropping out. By donating $100, $50, or even $10 dollars, you can help a student realize their dream of achieving college success. Truly, any amount helps to make a difference between success and a dream deferred.

To contribute to the Scholar Emergency Fund:

And again, thank you for helping College Success Arizona support more students than ever before.

Happy Holidays!

Sincerely,

Rich Nickel
President and CEO
