IMSA Emergency Student Relief Fund
A major gift from alumni couple, Sam Yagan ’95 and Jessica Droste Yagan ’95, has pushed the Student Emergency Relief Fund closer to its $110,000 goal.  In all, 34 alumni have made a gift to the emergency relief fund.  The IMSA Alumni Association announced that it will donate $2,500 if the number reaches 50 and another $2,500 if the number of alumni who give to the relief fund tops 100.  To learn more about how to help IMSA student families who are struggling with essential expenses, as well as access to technology for remote learning during this unprecedented pandemic, click  here.

With this fund, we hope to provide financial assistance to our community’s low income students for essential expenses, as well as access to technology for remote learning. Our goal is to ensure that every student in our community can continue to experience IMSA’s robust educational program from home, regardless of their financial situation.

Please join us by visiting IMSA’s Emergency Student Relief Fund to learn more and to make your donation now. You can also send a check payable to the “IMSA Fund for Advancement of Education” and indicate "Emergency Relief Fund" in the memo line.
