Bay Area Rockers: Your generosity is needed!

To wrap up its 50th anniversary celebration, Simon's Rock is raising funds to name 50 one-year scholarships of $5,000 each for the school year ahead.

Each scholarship will support a student who belongs among us in the Rocker community.

Together, we hundreds of Rockers in the Bay Area can band together to sponsor three of these scholars in the year ahead. Over the course of the year, our scholars will let us know what their up to on their Simon's Rock journey.

Additionally, each of our gifts count toward a 50th anniversary gift goal of 1,966 contributions, at which point a challenge donor from the entering class of 1985 will contribute an additional $50,000 in scholarship support to the Rock.

Join us because you know the difference it will make for a student ready to leap to college at Simon's Rock; do it in honor of a faculty member who made a difference for you; donate because you received a scholarship and want to give back; or join us for any other reason that is meaningful to you.

In every instance, you matter to this drive and to the students whose lives are affected by your gift.

Bay Area Rockers, let's do this!

SoCal and PNW, where you at?!
