What We Do:
At Fairhaven, we have created the Fairhaven College Opportunity Fund meets the needs of students facing financial challenges as they navigate their college experience. With the COVID-19 epidemic and the unprecedented unemployment we are experiencing, many students find their anticipated sources of income reduced or eliminated. We are helping to fill part of that need with college scholarships. We provided over $50,000 in emergency support to Fairhaven students for the spring quarter alone!
While Fairhaven College classes are all online this quarter, I’m happy to report that the Outback Farm is still in operation. Our dedicated crew of staff and students is planting food and tending the gardens. With food insecurity higher than we’ve ever seen it, we hope that the fresh food from the Outback will help make a small and meaningful contribution to the health of our community.
What You Can Do:
We know that all of you are facing challenges adapting to the current set of realities as we are. We hope that you will consider this opportunity to support Fairhaven College, either by donating to the Opportunity Fund Scholarship, the Outback Farm, or to our unrestricted fund that goes to support faculty and student projects and college events.
