Together, we invest in the lives of students and empower women philanthropists to impact our community.
The Los Rios Women’s Impact Circle (WIC) is a women’s collective giving organization dedicated to raising funds to support the Los Rios Student Emergency Fund. Through their membership in WIC, women across the region support students by paying an annual $100 membership fee (minimum).
We are enlisting volunteers who will encourage other women to participate. This grassroots effort to build a robust endowment and provide current use grants is an important way that we can provide Los Rios students with emergency grant funds both now and in the future.
About the Student Emergency Fund
The Student Emergency Fund gives immediate financial help to Los Rios students experiencing emergencies, so they can continue progress toward a certificate or degree. The kinds of emergencies that our students face include illness, fire, assault, death in the family, and homelessness – and yet our students continue to go to classes.
Through support of the Student Emergency Fund, donors have helped hundreds of students and their families into places of much-needed safety and security.
Over the past ten years, we have seen just how critical the Student Emergency Fund has become to the success of our students. Our goal is to grow an endowed fund, so that we have a predictable and reliable base of support each year and raise much-needed current support.
