NFC Connections Summer 2020 - Page 7

Let’s Talk Emergency Aid. NFC Foundation Student Relief Fund addresses small unexpected expenses faced by students that create barriers to enrollment, persistence, and completion at NFC. The philosophy behind the Student Relief Fund program is that students are humans first and barriers beyond tuition and textbooks must be minimized to ensure college success. In our region food and housing are very real roadblocks to college success. Unexpected, “right now” expenses that block a student’s momentum to degree or certificate obtainment cannot be allowed to derail their progress. “We look to the community to stand with us as the Foundation equitably and efficiently stands with our students during these challenging times.. Judy Agner Lundell North Florida College Foundation, Inc. “ Let’s Talk Student Success. Our articles of incorporation as a Foundation state that “The purpose of the Foundation is to provide direct financial support for the students and programs of North Florida College.” The Foundation is part of the NFC vision of providing personalized, responsive support to our students. We look to the community to stand with us as the Foundation equitably and efficiently stands with our students during these challenging times. I trust in you, our greater community of like-minded citizens, to stand with us to advance educational opportunities for our deserving students. North Florida College’s mantra is “Sentinels stand together.” I challenge you to stand with us!
