For over 15 years, the Visitation Partners Program
has quietly helped young women who need tuition assistance achieve the education of their dreams thanks to generous Partners (donors) who are willing to make a commitment to helping a young woman in need.
What are the Obligations of a Visitation Partner?
A Partner pledges to cover from 100% to 25% of a student’s tuition, generally from her freshman year through her graduation. In turn, the partnered student pledges to maintain acceptable grades and remain in good standing with the school.
What are the Benefits of Being a Visitation Partner?
Partners receive periodic updates and progress reports, including notes about classes and extracurricular activities, so they feel invested in their student’s successes. They relish knowing they are helping a real person with distinctive talents, hopes and aspirations. Partners also often receive heart-felt letters of thanks from students and their parents or guardians who, perhaps more than anyone, understand the value of this gift. The students and their families are grateful for the doors the gift of a Visitation education will open.
Who Can Be a Visitation Partner?
Virtually anyone or any group can be a Visitation Partner. Georgetown Visitation is happy to work with individuals, families, groups, corporations, foundations, or businesses to tailor a Partnership so that it reflects a donor’s philanthropic interests and abilities and makes a Visitation education possible for another outstanding young woman.
