to apply for assistance:
What do I do if I am in need or I know
someone who is in need of assistance?
Reach Out has a simple application process. The first step
is to go to the website and download an application.
After filling out some basic information about the
circumstances of need, and including two references,
send the application back to Reach Out via email, fax or
postal mail. From there, the applications committee will
contact the alum in need for an interview and also contact
the two references. After all interviews are complete, the
applications committee will present the application to the
Reach Out board and they will vote on what assistance
Reach Out can provide.
Is the assistance offered only financial?
Reach Out can help alumni in non-financial ways such as
job assistance or obtaining low-cost medical/dental aid.
Sometimes emotional support is offered by matching the
alumni in crisis with someone who has been through a
similar challenging situation. Alumni have come forward
with various situations: some are without a home, without
a job, or in need of emergency medical care. Most never
thought they would be in a position to need help and
they express deep gratitude for the support of the alumni
How can I support the mission of Reach Out?
With a focus on the future, the financial status of Reach
Out is looking to replenish the general fund to be able
to continue helping alumni in the years to come. So far,
Reach Out has not needed to turn anyone away based on a
lack of funding. If you would like to make a tax-deductible
donation to help alumni in need, please go to the Reach
Out website and start a monthly donation or give a
one-time donation. Any amount you can give will be
appreciated and will go directly to helping alumni in need.

All donations are tax deductible and go to alumni in need.
