Student Expresses Heartfelt Thanks with Inspirational Story

Wednesday, November 30, 2016

Meet Erica.  Erica is one of Polk State College students reaching for her goals.  Like many of our students, Erica was faced with difficult circumstances that led her on a different path.  Today, Erica knows where she is going and she is doing so with the help of our donors!  On #GivingTuesday, the Foundation premiered this video to express a heartfelt thanks to all of our donors and to share the power of philanthropy.  #GivingTuesday was integrated in the Give the Gift of Education annual appeal.  Our online #GivingTuesday efforts raised $2,375 for emergency scholarships.  Additionally, the Give the Gift campaign has already raised  $1,975 in mail in contributions.
