For underserved and low-income Spokane high school students, attending college can feel unattainable. College Success Foundation (CSF) is breaking down those barriers and providing long-term support for students as they journey toward college degrees.
CSF offers educational pathways for students from middle school through college completion. The COVID-19 pandemic created additional and seemingly insurmountable obstacles for some of those students, including Sultan, an incoming Gonzaga University freshman. Sultan was suddenly faced with the possibility of not being able to attend school because he couldn’t afford books for his pre-med program. In response, Innovia awarded $3,000 in COVID-19 Community Response and Recovery Funds to CSF to help students like Sultan overcome these new challenges.
