At Mount Ida, we pride ourselves on making a difference each day in the lives of our students. WE all find various ways to come together in the classroom or on the playing field to help our students succeed.
YOU also have an opportunity to make a difference at Mount Ida. Each gift we receive directly benefits our students as they work towards their goal of becoming an Ida graduate.
College is expensive and many of our students work multiple jobs to ensure that they can be an Ida student. They want to be part of this wonderful community that provides personal attention and support for them to succeed. They work hard, they don’t complain and they become active contributors on campus.
Even with the more than $26 million in financial aid that the College provides annually to the students, a gap in funds for tuition remains for too many of our Ida students.
This financial strain can mean a student has to:
- Take a semester or two off to save more tuition money
- Work an additional job and can no longer dedicate time to their studies, be a varsity athlete, take advantage of an internship or be a leader on campus
- Withdraw from Ida and not complete their degree, which is the worst situation of all.
YOUR gift of any size helps make the difference on whether or not a student stays a Mustang!
Just think, if everyone contributed $5/month each year we would raise an additional $1.8 million that would benefit our students.
YOU can make that difference and YOU can have that impact.
