Light The Way

Join us for an illuminating celebration of student potential and success! Right now students are ready and eager to use their creative and innovating thinking to realize their dreams and shape our communities near and far. But with more than half of Evergreen students having low-income, many may not have the financial means to make their dreams a reality. Imagine the impact your generosity will have on the educational journey for Evergreen’s remarkable students.

At the 2019 Art of Giving, supporters like you answered the call to support those resilient students, investing more than $295,000 in the Evergreen Scholarship Fund. Imagine the possibility of what we can achieve this year together with your help.
