Be a Promise Partner
At San Jac, we use the word partner a lot. But it’s not a word we use casually. Students strive hard to succeed, but some students still need help. They need to know they won’t have to sacrifice their dream of an education and a better future due to a financial constraint.
That’s where the Promise scholarship comes in. Partnering with donors, we cover students’ remaining financial need after grants, other scholarships, and federal and state aid – down to the last dollar.
Thanks to philanthropist MacKenzie Scott and her husband Dan Jewett’s gift of $30 million, we are expanding Promise @ San Jac. But we aren’t finished yet.
More than 50% of San Jac students come from historically underserved areas, and more than 80% are in a low socioeconomic status and would benefit from the Promise scholarship. This makes our mission even more critical.
To support the Promise scholarship permanently, we must raise an additional $10 million for our Student Success Fund Endowment. Earnings from this endowment will support all incoming high school graduates in our taxing district who want to attend San Jac.
Will you become an annual giving Promise Partner to help us make debt-free college available to all in-district high school seniors? Be the hero of a student’s story today.
Why I’m a Promise Partner
A Promise Partner is someone who commits to giving at least $120 per year ($10 per month) for a minimum of five years. As a Promise Partner, you create a stronger community and economy by helping our future leaders get a college education. The last-dollar Promise scholarship covers up to three years of tuition and books so students can finish their certificate or associate degree without debt.
You support our Promise scholars by…
- Making an annual contribution to be applied towards an endowment for these scholarships. Your contribution can be monthly, quarterly, or annually - whatever works best for you.
- Participating in fundraising/community outreach efforts
- Growing the program by spreading the word
Our Promise Partners ensure the Promise scholarship is available to all in-district high school seniors now and in years to come.
