About the COVID Student Aid Fund
THE COVID STUDENT Aid fund was created to ensure that no young woman needs to discontinue her Visitation education as a result of this pandemic. Specifically, this fund addresses the immediate need for financial aid as a result of the current crisis and ensures that our current freshman, sophomores, juniors and seniors can remain with their classes and celebrate treasured milestones together: laughing at Marshmallow Roast, cheering at Gold-White, enjoying a sunset during Junior Retreat, and many more.
COVID-19 has and will create unprecedented challenges for us logistically, financially, and emotionally -- depressing our endowment, straining family finances, and postponing or cancelling many cherished traditions.
While Visitation is well-positioned to weather this financial storm, we are feeling its effects, as are our current families. Now, more than ever, we need to lean on our faith and each other. As St. Jane urges, we place all our confidence in God’s strength, even as we turn to one another for help.
We are grateful to all our current and past donors for their loyal support.
Thanks to our Board and Administration's thoughtful, long-range financial planning, we have spent years building a robust educational and business technology infrastructure that has allowed us to quickly pivot to distance learning and remote working. Consistent investment in professional development and the hard work and dedication of our brilliant faculty and staff have made the transition to “Virtual Visitation” not just possible, but successful. Even as we respond to the immediate challenges of this pandemic, we will continue to plan for the long, vibrant future of Georgetown Visitation.
