Opening Doors, Changing Lives Fund

Dear Friends of Galveston College:

For more than 50 years, Galveston College has been transforming the lives of our students, providing them with the tools they need to make a difference to their families, their employers, and their communities.

We are proud of our students, many of whom have overcome significant challenges just to enroll at the college. Our students are hard-working adults, single parents, and veterans. They are talented recent high school graduates whose families often cannot afford any tuition bills. Our students work hard to gain the experience and knowledge needed to be active members of our communities.

We are very proud of our alumni, who play important roles in the community and in the state’s economy. Our alumni are your nurses, air conditioning technicians, EMTs, teachers, and business owners. They are skilled employees in businesses, working in high-demand industries such as computer information technology, petrochemical, and healthcare.

We are asking you to make a gift to Galveston College Foundation’s Opening Doors, Changing Lives Fund. Gifts to this fund will enable the Foundation and the College to place resources where they are most needed, often when no other resources would be available.

Your gift this year is more important to Galveston College students than ever before. Your gift will go beyond the classroom, delivering a better future for our community.

With sincere gratitude,

Dr. Myles Shelton, President     
Karen Flowers, Chair, Board of Regents          
Jeri Kinnear, Chair, Foundation Board of Directors
