Match Campaign

Money raised to help support students' travel

The Higher Education and Student Personnel (HEASP) Travel Fund has supported students since 2010. During this time, the program has been fundraising in an effort to reach endowment level with this fund. That goal is now in sight, which means the fund can continue helping current students in perpetuity. This fund ensures HEASP students can take advantage of all the benefits of being involved with professional organizations by attending and presenting at national and regional conferences.

Want to help push this fund over the endowment level?  Consider making a gift now and every dollar given will be matched. Through a joint partnership with Dr. Mark Kretovics and fellow alumni Dr. Brandi Hephner LaBanc, M.Ed. ‘97 and Dave LaBanc, M.Ed. ‘98, every dollar raised between now and March 31, 2016, up to $4,000 will be matched in support of this fund. We are elated to receive such support, and hope you, our fellow alumni, will take advantage of this exciting opportunity to help the program surpass its fundraising goal.

To support this effort you can give securely online at the Higher Education Giving Page. If giving to the HEASP Travel Fund does not interest you, please keep in mind our Higher Education Scholarship, which is designed to support students in financial need based on unique situations.
