Help Chance Pay For School

$10,490 of $12,000 goal

Raised by 362 people in 23 months

Hello, my name is Chance Ward and I am currently a rising senior at Occidental College. Those who know me, or any of my work, would know that Occidental is my dream school and that I study what I love. I major in Critical Theory and Social Justice, and also work on the campus in the Intercultural Community Center. Through my work at Occidental, I have built skills in community engagement and grassroots organizing that I would not trade for the world. However, as tuition costs have risen and circumstances have changed, I am currently looking at a $9500 gap that I did not anticipate financing back when I was a first year. This fund, literally, is a hail mary to save me from taking any more loans for my undergraduate degree and allow me to still do what I love where I am happy. 

Throughout my time at occidental, I have accomplished things that I know I will one day be proud to tell my Grandkids. From being a leader in Campus advocacy in our November Occupation to even just getting a lot of Facebook clout for being your neighborhood activist media mave. I plan to do so many more things, including studying abroad in the Dominican Republic (stay tuned), and returning in the Spring to work as a Peer Mentor for the Center for Gender Equity.

I, like most, have a very hard time putting my hand out and asking for things. But I beg of you all to think of what you share as an investment. I intend to use these funds, and this education, to study and master the ways in which our communities can create an equitable and tolerant world.

Hello folks, PLEASE keep sharing this! While I was able to skimp up enough to budget studying abroad, being abroad and being poor has led to such a saddening experience, there are so many things the program and my peers just assume I have money for when I do not. There have already been trips and activities, both of academic and leisurely nature, that I have had to pass on simply because I just do not have the money to participate. And to make matters even worse, my MacBook's startup disk is busted and I do not have the $400 that they demand to repair it.

I currently have no idea how Im going to make it through this semester without a functioning computer, I have no idea how I'm going to pay for next semester back at Oxy (or even if I'll be able to return at this point), and I damn sure don't have any idea of any ideas of how I can dig myself out of this hole.

Hey loves,

It's been only 24 hours and we've already raised $1k to help me save the world! The anxieties I had before surrounding asking the masses for help, specifically financial help, have begun to melt away and I am now able to fully embrace the gratitude that lies in my heart.

I was certainly not expecting to even raise this much, let alone raise so much of it from people I go to school with. During times like this it hits me like a brick wall that, despite our social realities, that there are folks who value me and my work enough to invest in its longevity. It's one of the only few times that a down & brown activist like me gets to feel human.

For those of you who have given and shared, please do not think I take it for granted. Please do not think I do not see you. I do, and thank you, and I love you. And I hope you continue to laugh, cry, and learn with me as a push on to afford school!
