EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) — Ivy Tech’s newly established COVID-19 Relief Fund is seeking donations that will be matched thanks to a gift from one of its trustees.
Trustee Marianne Glick, and her spouse, Mike Woods, have committed $500,000 in matching funds across the state. Locally, Ivy Tech has a goal of raising $15,000 that will be matched. Chancellor Daniela Vidal says $11,000 has been raised so far, which will provide increased flexibility to assist the Evansville, Princeton, and Tell City locations.
“This COVID-19 rapid relief fund is set up to help students, and faculty and staff as well, with any financial need that they may have that is preventing them from achieving their education goals,” Vidal said.
Tuesday is the last day for Ivy Tech to get the matching funds. Vidal says since they’ve advertised that the fund is available, requests have tripled.
