Somos Tejas State - Hispanic / Latinx Student Support Fund
Fundraising Campaign: September 15 - October 15
Last year we raised almost $3,000. These funds were used to provide direct support to half a dozen students through conference registration fees, flights, and mini-grants. This year Somos Tejas State is focusing on student retention and professional development. It is critical that our student’s basic needs are met so that they can remain and thrive in college. Your generosity will help students access vital resources to be competitive members in the workplace after graduation.
