Annual Fund: From Roofing to the Operating Room
José is a first-generation American immigrant. He's also an undocumented college student.
"One day while I was having a hard day at work tearing down the roof of a house, I realized I could do something bigger. At that moment I knew I was capable of pursuing a higher education."
José enrolled in Minneapolis College's School of Nursing program and graduated with a 3.0 GPA earlier this month. His next step is Metro State University to earn a bachelor's degree in Biology. José's sights are set on attending a top-ranked medical school and he credits Minneapolis College for helping him get there.
"I am one step closer to my dream of becoming a surgeon. Being awarded a scholarship from the Minneapolis College Foundation took a heavy burden off my shoulders. I am humbled and honored that they believed in me. I can't wait when I become a surgeon, so that I can pay it forward by helping the underrepresented in our community."
We are grateful for donors like you who invest in scholarships to support Minneapolis College students like José. Your generosity ensures they reach their academic dreams and build a strong path forward.
Thank you for believing in the power of a college credential. Together, we can change the world.
As this year winds down, please consider a gift to support tomorrow's workforce today. Here's to a wonderful 2018 for everyone!
Your tax-deductible contribution will fuel over 800 Minneapolis College scholars' success and growth.
Thank you for your generosity.
We are delighted to introduce you to Patsy. She became an Minneapolis College student last fall, majoring in Human Services.
"I know this is just the beginning and I have a long way to go, but I'm glad my journey starts here at Minneapolis College."
Patsy plans to transfer to Augsburg College and pursue her bachelor's degree in social work.
"My education and career path has been made possible due to the generous donations that made my scholarships possible. I am very moved by knowing someone believed in me enough to ensure that I will have a place to utilize my gifts and talents. I will never take that for granted."
Often, the only thing standing between our students and access to higher education is a scholarship. Without financial contributions from friends like you, college would not be an option for so many. Perhaps you know the impact of financial support first-hand. We need your help to continue offering scholarships to deserving students like Patsy so they can reach their academic dreams.
Please donate today and be part of the foundation of transformation at Minneapolis College. The return on your investment is a powerful and immediate impact on our students and community. This holiday season, we hope you consider making a tax-deductible contribution and fuel over 800 Minneapolis College scholars' success and growth. Together, we can change the world.
Our best wishes for a happy, bright holiday season. Thank you for your generosity.
