Aaron Barrientos, current Membership Officer for ATSO and a recipient of the Student Emergency Assistance Fund (SEAF), thanks donors and provides an update on the Student Emergency Assistance Fund.  

Brenna Danielson graduated with her Master of Science in Taxation from Walsh College in June of this year. In recognition of this she posted the following on LinkedIn and wishes to share it with the Walsh community: 
First, thank you to the Employees of Walsh College and the Michigan Women’s Tax Association. I received scholarships from both groups, which provided me with a lot of peace of mind. Second, thank you to all the amazing professors of the tax program, the feedback and guidance provided by such wonderful tax professionals only comes second to the wonderful lectures I had the pleasure of sitting through.​
I have the ultimate support system and without you all, this wouldn’t have been possible. #WalshCollege #MST

Through the annual Employee Giving Campaign, we have the opportunity to advance our mission and support students with financial need by investing in Walsh. Since 1993, Walsh employees have raised more than $413,525 in support of our students, while continuously surpassing 65 percent participation.

This year particularly has been difficult for our students and their families. Many have had to make tough decisions regarding the continuation of their education during a public health crisis. Students and families are still making tough financial decisions to stay on track for their degrees.  Lost wages, internet expenses for remote learning, rent, medical bills and even food are all examples of requests flooding in to our Student Emergency Assistance Fund. Employee participation plays an important role in assisting our students in overcoming these challenges together.

We know this year has been financially challenging for many of us, and we ask for your thoughtful consideration of support to the Student Emergency Assistance Fund, or another fund or area you are passionate about. A gift of any amount helps a student stay in school at Walsh during this pandemic.

Join us now and consider a gift that will have an immediate and long-term impact on the lives’ of our students and in support of our mission. The financial challenges we all face are real and a gift of any amount helps a student stay in school. Then come back and help us celebrate our accomplishments on Walsh Giving Day, August 26.
