On December 3, we cordially invite Hostos Community College’s family and friends to “Give & Inspire” in support of #HostosGivingTuesday. Our goal is to join together to empower even more of our dedicated students to persist and earn their degrees.

This year, Hostos has selected three impactful student support offerings to which you may apply your gift – The Circle of 100 Emergency Fund, The Bridge Tuition Support Assistance Program (BTSA), and The General Academic Excellence Fund (GAEF).

• The Circle of 100 Emergency Fund assists students with expenses that all too often prohibit them from continuing with their studies, such as MetroCards, course materials, and examination and certification fees, to name a few.

• The Bridge Tuition Support Assistance Program provides assistance to students who are close to graduating to ensure that financial adversity does not prohibit them from completing their path to degree obtainment.

• The General Academic Excellence Fund enables departments to provide top-performing students with financial awards in recognition of their achievements during the Annual Honors Convocation. Whether it be The Circle of 100, BTSA, or GAEF, please consider a gift in support of our students – and invite others to do the same. Each and every dollar raised will help enable our students to excel and succeed. Your commitment demonstrates your steadfast belief in our students – and inspires them to aspire.

Together, this giving season, we can further academic excellence and transform lives.www.cunytuesday.org/organizations/hostos-community-college
