% Meet the Match: Childcare Assistance Fund Challenge Progress
s we emerge from the pandemic, many students with young children are struggling to afford both the cost of college and the cost of childcare, resulting in declining enrollment of students who are parents at LWTech. This year, financial assistance for childcare is one of the top requests from students in need.
Entrepreneurs and long-time LWTech donors, Jim Kinsella and Bob McNeal, joined together with three anonymous donors to spearhead the Childcare Assistance Fund Matching Challenge in response to this growing need. This generous group of donors are matching up to $50,000 in donations to assist our students during this challenging time.
This video shares the stories of two hardworking, highly motivated students who are also parents. Learn how your support allows these students to focus on their education, while building a brighter future for themselves and their children. Please consider making a gift of any amount so our student-parents can build a better life for themselves, their children, and our community.
