Dawson Foundation, Dawson Gives, Student Services

Thank you!

We asked and the Dawson Community and friends of Dawson responded. The COVID-19 Student Financial Aid Fund has reached just shy of $5,000.

Special thanks to all who are participating in the Dawson Blues Band led by Vincent Maggiore (Business Administration) and everyone who donated and shared the needs of our students on social media.

The full amount will be dedicated to the Dawson Financial Aid Program. Student Services and the Dawson Foundation are working on the details of how the funds will benefit students.

More news to come in the next few weeks!

If you would like to help us reach an even $5,000 from the community and friends of Dawson, make a donation.
