How to help

Every dollar makes a difference!
The global COVID-19 pandemic has placed unexpected financial challenges on many of our students who find themselves suddenly unemployed. If you are able, please consider providing critical,
targeted assistance to students through a donation to Lift Up Vikes!

Donations made during this time will help students with housing, food and
communication, in an effort to keep folks safe, healthy, and engaged as learners.

Please consider making your donation by credit card here .
