Giving Tuesday 2018
Last year we succeeded in raising over $50,000 for student scholarships thanks to the generosity of the PNWU community. This year, we'll be turning our attention to support our mission-driven students with an emergent need by highlighting the Virginia Hislop Emergency Fund.
The Virginia Hislop Emergency Fund provides immediate relief to PNWU students experiencing an unexpected financial emergency so they can get back to what matters most - providing quality care to rural and underserved communities in the Pacific Northwest.
Virginia "Ginger" Hislop, education advocate and member of the PNWU Scholarship Committee, established this fund in 2017. She recognized the only option for emergency funding was additional student loans, and wanted to provide a better, less stressful path to solve that problem.
