Why I Give... Ivy Vainio

 Ivy and Old Main

I have worked for this university for 15 years.  For the past 11 years, every month, I have given to the Multicultural Center Fund.  With the Multicultural Center Fund, the monies in the past have been used for short term book loans which have helped students of color acquire their textbooks from the bookstore if their financial aid hadn't come in at the beginning of the semester.  The Fund also helps with funding diversity awareness programs on our campus, provides our Multicultural Center with necessary items, and the Office of Multicultural Affairs with other needed services. 

Also, years ago, my husband and I put the University into our will by requesting that our endowment goes directly to student of color scholarships.  Both of us know, from experience, the financial struggles/barriers that many students of color face when entering college.  It feels great to give!  Financial giving means that everyone benefits; the students, the programs, the University, and our communities.
