More than 50% of college-age students fail to graduate or do not enroll in college at all due to factors such as cost, family obligations, or access to the resources needed to pursue higher education. Nationally, 89% of low-income, first generation students leave college without a degree. Normandale Community College Foundation actively works to create brighter futures for students desiring but struggling to afford a college education.
Double your dollars! Manley Olson, Normandale retired faculty member, has pledged $1,000 in a dollar for dollar matching gift challenge.
Imagine the impact your tax-deductible gift will make in the lives of these students. Help us give them a hand-up and support their dream of a college education to create a brighter future for themselves, their families and the communities in which they will serve.
