With your support, more than $400,000 has been distributed in Emergency Fund Requests to students since the pandemic started to help our students with financial burdens so they’re not inclined to stop or drop out of school.
“I live off campus and must pay rent every month on top of making car and credit card payments. So, I reached out to Spark for assistance with purchasing a textbook I needed for my marketing class. I would have had to put money to the side until I had enough to make the purchase or borrow a copy from my professor or classmates. The emergency request fund helped me get the materials I needed to fully participate in class and complete assigned readings and homework. Donations to Spark help fill the gap for those who need help getting through school. Without your donations, I’d be under way more stress and pressure than I already am.”Marcus, Spark college student
