FastStart 4 Impact

This unique opportunity gives students more financial help, faster. Typically, an endowment fund starts small and grows over four years. Fast Start 4 Impact changes that. Fast Start awards students right away, in an amount that is roughly equivalent to the payout of a fully established fund.

  • Your gift helps deserving students right away. Your investment continues to help students for generations to come, and your gift can be made over 4 years.
