Student Assistance Fund Endowment (SAFE)

Fulfilling Promise to All Students

Sierra College has a Promise for students who may have never considered college, and for those who think college isn’t possible. Sierra Promise offers access to education to help students succeed in school and beyond.

Sierra College Foundation is raising a $5 million Student Assistance Fund Endowment to establish a sustainable program and offer continued support for high need students. Can you help?

Of the many incoming Sierra Promise students, each year approximately 300 have extreme need and little to no outside support. Through state and federal aid, they are able to pay fees and some educational expenses, but they still need assistance with items such as food, transportation, books, and more.

How Funds Will Be Spent

SAFE funds are a last dollar option for Sierra Promise students who have exhausted all other funding (i.e., AB 19 funds, Cal Grant, scholarships, etc.). Awards are made on a case-by-case basis under the guidance of a Sierra College counselor. Those with identified needs can access these funds to help close the gap and meet basic needs, including books, school supplies, food, transportation, housing stipends, and more.
