Giving to Beacon
Beacon College was the first accredited four year college in the country to offer baccalaureate programs solely for students with learning disabilities and ADHD. When you give to the College in any way, you are helping to further this unique mission. Your generosity directly impacts students, making an enormous difference in their lives.
The goal of Beacon College is to expand in the coming years to serve 450 students, many of whom would not have the financial means to attend college without generous assistance. Your donations help the College serve students by providing scholarships to deserving students, helping to expand the campus by providing funds to renovate existing facilities in downtown Leesburg, and contributing to programs and services vital to the academic and career success of our students.
Who benefits from your donation? Students like Shia, who transferred to Beacon College to receive the support and encouragement needed to thrive with her disability and who has become a leader on campus. Now in her senior year, Shia plans to work in the field of human services, helping others with disabilities. Learn more about her story.
