Supporting Students During a Time for Tenacity

The Evergreen State College Foundation in partnership with alumni, donors, friends, and businesses raised $255,894 for student scholarships! 

In lieu of its annual gala and auction, The Evergreen State College Foundation hosted an ambitious, six-week Art of Giving Scholarship Drive from March 15 – April 24 to raise $200,000 for the Evergreen Scholarship Fund. Inspired after raising more than $230,000 by April 23, the Foundation set a new stretch goal of $250,000 for scholarships by 12 p.m. on April 24.

With an average award of $2,545, this success means 100 students can receive scholarships ensuring they can continue forward with confidence on their journey of learning thanks to the Art of Giving.
