Survive & Thrive Donations are Tax-Deductible

In the last 2 years Shasta College students have collectively experienced some of the greatest challenges our state, nation, and now world have faced. Fires, snow storms, global pandemics…yet, our students still struggle on. Many are suffering from survivor fatigue. Strong willed, but with spirits and finances battered many sacrifice life’s essentials just to attend class and earn their degree. We at the Shasta College Foundation believe that there’s a better way.

We believe that it’s not enough just to survive. Just like you, we want our students to thrive! So, we’re asking you to come alongside with us as we start a fund that can help with basic life necessities for our students such as food, transportation (gas cards, bus passes), and clothing.

Help our students survive AND thrive. Join us today and make a donation to the Shasta College Student Survive AND Thrive Fund.​
