This Year's Project: Because You Matter Fund
Briar Cliff University is a community committed to higher education within a liberal arts and Catholic perspective. In the Franciscan tradition of service, caring and openness to all, Briar Cliff emphasizes quality education for its students, combining a broad intellectual background with career development. The University challenges its members to grow in self-awareness and in their relationships to others and to God.
Current Project: Because You Matter Fund
You Matter at Briar Cliff University, and our Because You Matter Fund will serve as a resource for students in need after experiencing financial hardship like a family emergency or job loss. While scholarships may help these students attend school, the cost of living, emergency traveling, and even eating may be more than what they can afford during a financial crisis. Our goal is to support these students during this time to ensure that they receive their education without undue financial burden that impacts their well-being.
The Because You Matter Fund will help students pay for things like food, emergency travel, gas, textbooks, winter coats, and even shoes. Items like these may seem small, but they can make the biggest difference in a student's ability to get their college degree. With your support, our students can focus on their future instead of how they're going to pay for their next meal or get home to see a dying family member.
