Evans Student Organization (ESO) Announces 2021 Class Gift Campaign!

Evans Student Organization (ESO) is proud to announce the start of the 2021 class gift campaign!

The 2021 class gift will be a contribution to the Evans Critical Need Fund (CNF). The CNF was created by the class of 2019, and supplemented by the class of 2020, to provide financial assistance to students who experience emergency situations that threaten the student’s ability to attain their full academic potential and/or optimal educational experience.  Your help in raising funds for the 2021 gift will ensure the Critical Need Fund is available for students in need, now and in the future.

Since its creation, the CNF has been used to help several of our peers facing difficult circumstances, with the majority of initial funds dispensed since the start of the current public health crisis. Refilling the CNF will ensure that it remains a viable resource for students with acute financial needs.

We know that everyone has been impacted differently by the current situation and our goal is to encourage participation in a way that best fits everyone’s unique circumstances. We encourage those who can to pay it forward and support their classmates at whatever level is best for them; this campaign can also be shared with family, friends, and employers.

The donation portal will close at the end of the day on May 31st, 2021. Thank you for your part in this campaign to support our fellow students, whether it is through direct donations or sharing the information with others. We hope this class gift campaign will be a way for those who can to pay it forward and support the community that has supported us!
