Hope. Dreams. Degree Completion.

“I never gave up hope.” –Diana Kirkland, Peirce College Class of 2016

Diana Kirkland is one of many students who entered Peirce College with a dream, a desire, and a passion to do more. She is also one of the many Peirce students and alums who achieved her goal of a college degree through hard work, encouragement, and the support of the Peirce community.

Graduates like Diana are what we like to call opportunity students. They must balance work, school, family, and other obligations all while chasing that end goal: degree completion. For more than 151 years, Peirce College has made practical education and learning accessible, affordable, and relevant for working adults and their families, so everyone has the chance to make their dreams a reality.

But we need your support in order to make this happen. On November 29th, Peirce College will participate in #GivingTuesday, an international day of generosity that empowers you to invest in important causes. In this season of hope and gratitude, please consider giving to the Peirce College Annual Fund.  Every donation will make a difference in preparing and equipping our students to take on the challenges of the 21st century knowledge economy. At Peirce, we hope to utilize the donations in a way in which academic support and career counseling services can be bolstered, new courses of study can be developed to meet the region’s increasing need for skilled employees, and to make supportive financial aid and scholarships available to ensure that all students are able to achieve their goals.

Any amount is welcomed; your participation is what makes the difference.  To participate in #GivingTuesday, please visit our secure website today for more information and to make a donation. Thank you in advance for taking the opportunity to help our Peirce students achieve their goal of earning a college degree.
