LEARN MORE ABOUT THE MAKE AN IMPACT FUND
When a student is working three jobs, receiving maximum financial aid, and still can’t cover tuition … or when a student can’t cover the cost of travel for a return home for a family emergency … the Make An Impact Fund empowers these students to stay enrolled, stay on track, and finish their degrees. Purchase is one of a very small number of schools with a permanent emergency fund set up to support our students. Every gift to the fund is 100% tax-deductible and makes an immediate impact.

The financial situation of a student in his final semester took a dramatic downturn as family resources were diverted to support his father’s treatment and in-home care during the final stages of cancer.
An emergency travel grant made it possible for an arts major to spend the last days of his grandmother’s life by her side.
