Your contributions help students year after year in pursing their higher education dreams.
Sanford School student Maggie Hardin has this to say, "With several professors' guidance, I have been able to learn in a classroom, participate in a research project, and engage with the community through an internship. I have also received two scholarships through the Sanford School. Without these generous donors, I do not know if I would be where I am today."
Help us continue to create opportunities for students by giving today. We cannot fulfill our mission without you!
