Carissa's College Fund
Organized by: Carissa Winter
I started college in 2006 working towards an associates degree in Graphic Design. Life changes forced me to put my education on hold in the fall of 2008. In the spring of 2012, I returned to Hennepin Technical College, taking one course per semester. I've completed 1/2 my degree so far. This year I am not eligible for our state grant (12 credits minimum). At the end of August, I plan to take two classes, if I can raise enough funds.
I work full-time for a nonprofit I've been employed with for 14 years. I also volunteer with The Wildcat Sanctuary and design their quarterly magazine UPROAR. I'm passionate about wildlife and pets and looking forward to putting my skills to work to benefit other organizations.
What will your money support? Your donation will help me cover tuition and books and purchase a new iMac computer (I'm looking for a refurbished computer to keep costs down) and a 2 year subscription for Adobe Creative Cloud software (student edition) that is required for my degree. Your generosity will help me towards my dream of obtaining a degree and doing more great work for other charities.
Thank you for considering my fundraiser.
