Santa Ana, Calif. – The Santa Ana College (SAC) Foundation recently received a $15,000 donation from U.S. Bank. This generous contribution will fund support services for SAC student veterans to ensure their success as they transition back into civilian life.
U.S. Bank remains a steadfast partner with Santa Ana College, having been a supporter and champion of student veterans and SAC’s Veterans Resource Center (VRC) for the last five years. With U.S. Bank’s support, the SAC VRC has been able to offer scholarships, tutoring and mentoring services; financial planning workshops such as debt management and investment education; educational planning; and urgent action requests such as textbook assistance.
All of these efforts allow for completion, retention, and the ability to provide strong pathways for post-secondary education for SAC student veterans. In the 2016-17 academic year, SAC served over 500 veterans through the VRC.
"At U.S. Bank, we invest our time, resources and passion to build and support vibrant communities that allow every person to work toward their possibilities,” said Clayton Rivest, Vice President, Private Banker at U.S. Bank. “We are focused on economic development and it starts by supporting nonprofits who help people achieve higher education, become financially literate, secure employment, and develop small businesses. Our partnership with the Santa Ana College Foundation is a perfect example of how we do that. On behalf of our Proud to Serve Team at U.S. Bank, we are especially excited to help support our veterans."
