As we look towards Giving Day September 17, 2020, we see how the COVID-19 has changed our lives since March of 2020.   As we navigate through each day and the many changes, our community is coming together to support the Grayson College students who need our help!  We have two options for you to give this year.  You can give as you have in the past to Viking Scholarship Fund or to yours.  The second option is to give to the Student Emergency Fund.  

Our students need financial assistance to attend school.  They also need help to offset day to day issues that arise unexpectedly.  COVID has exacerbated this problem. Some need emergency support to ensure they are fed, housed, and able to meet their basic needs all while still meeting their class requirements. Funds needed include: 

  • Funds for students who have lost wages or jobs they depend on to pay for their education and support themselves or their families.
  • Assistance with transportation expenses.
  • Immediate support for students facing housing challenges or food insecurity.

Your support is critical to our students' future and academic success.

Any amount is most appreciated and WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

All funds raised will be administered to ensure equity and support for the student.



The Grayson College Foundation, Inc. was incorporated in March 1992, as a 501 (c) 3, a nonprofit, tax-exempt entity formed solely for the purpose of support of Grayson College.

The Foundation seeks financial support to strengthen and expand the College's academic and technical programs.

Gifts and grants are needed beyond the scope of tax-based funding, thus providing a margin of excellence for the College's diversified program of learning opportunities.

Members of the Foundation are persons and companies which have made a gift to Grayson College during the current calendar year. The Foundation is governed by a self-perpetuating Board of Directors.

The Foundation may receive designated or unrestricted gifts and grants to be used for approved purposes at Grayson College. The Foundation may also hold funds in endowment for the College. Gifts to the Foundation are tax-deductible to the extent of limits set by law.
