Wesley House is excited to announce that we have received a $7,500 grant from the Nordson Corporation Foundation for our 2022 Student Support Service Program! This is the third grant awarded to Wesley House in support of our programming. Thank you to Nordson Corporation Foundation, their program staff, and their employees for recognizing the importance of supporting our incredible students working hard to change their lives and the world!
Since it was founded in 1989, Nordson Corporation Foundation has awarded more than $60 million in grants to nonprofits to improve the quality of life in our communities. The foundation is supported by employee donations, and awardees are selected by a Community Affairs Committee comprised of Nordson employees volunteering their time.
Our Student Support Services Program provides wraparound support for full-time college and university students with low incomes. Services such as financial planning workshops, tutoring, mentorship matching, a food pantry, and community events equip our students to excel in their studies and prepare for life after college.
