Sponsor a Finals Week Survival Kit for a current Messiah Student


Messiah alumni have the opportunity to sponsor a Finals Survival Kit for one of our current students for $10 each.  You can even include a note of encouragement to the student that receives your kit.  Help support our students as they go through this busy and stressful time of year!  Our goal is to provide a kit for every one of our 2,700 students and raise $13,000 for scholarships.  Help us reach that goal!


Visit to get more information or to sign up to sponsor a kit.  Questions? E-mail Kristin Zummo at
