The Wenatchee Valley College Foundation Knights Care Fund received a $5,000 grant from the Women’s Service League of North Central Washington.
The Knights Care Fund helps students facing financial crisis. Funds can go toward tuition, books, rent, food or other cost-of-living expenses. Each year, 55 to 60 percent of the students served by the Knights Care Fund are women, ranging in age from teenagers to those in their 50s.
On average, the Knights Care Fund provides $10,000 to $15,000 of support to WVC students each year. However, the Knights Care Fund does not have a consistent, permanent funding source, said WVC Foundation Executive Director Rachel Evey.
“We are grateful for the generous support from the Women’s Service League of NCW,” Evey said. “With the grant funding, WVC students will continue to receive support when they need it most.”
