It really hits the heart and home of who you are when an act of kindness is done for your struggle. What awesome people donors must be to go out of their way for someone they don't even know. This scholarship makes a big impact in every aspect of my life. Knowing these people believe in me makes me know that I can do this. Evergreen is where I need to be.

The Evergreen State College Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to building an outstanding future for The Evergreen State College.
Since 1976, the Foundation has supported this goal by raising private gifts from our remarkable and generous donors.
