When given this opportunity to become a part of a team which raises money to directly benefit students, I was so excited and honored! Helping others is a passion of mine and recently I have felt as if I am not doing as much as I know I could to benefit others. Personally, I have struggled with finances as a college student and I know the stress of being financially insecure. College is a stressful time, having financial issues on top of that only makes it worse. I believe if I can help someone alleviate some of their financial insecurity, their quality of life will become stronger.

I became involved with Ichabods Moving Forward because it is an amazing opportunity to give back to our campus and help out fellow Ichabods in need. Being a part of the Washburn community has inspired me to become more involved in philanthropy and serve others.

Being involved in philanthropy is important because it challenges me all while changing the world around me for the better. Massive changes start with small communities like ours at Washburn. I joined Ichabods Moving Forward because the Washburn community supported me in my times of need and throughout my successes as well. I am passionate about philanthropy and I want all Ichabods to be successful.

I have been on the receiving end of the incredible generosity of Ichabods Moving Forward, and so I am excited for the chance to be a part of a philanthropic student organization. I know both firsthand and from my friends that Ichabods Moving Forward has had a crucial impact on so many students at Washburn, and so I’m grateful for this opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our students. For me, Ichabods Moving Forward truly represents the ideals and mission of Washburn’s motto, Non Nobis Solum (“Not for ourselves alone”).

Being involved in a philanthropy is important because of how big of an impact it has on others. It can really change someone's life for the better, which is what encourages me to continue doing my part in order to help others. I decided to join Ichabods Moving Forward because I know what it's like to be in a bad financial situation. Joining Ichabods Moving Forward allowed me to help others in similar situations and ensure that they could continue their education at Washburn.

Being involved in philanthropy presents a unique opportunity to help students in unexpected financial situations. It’s crucial that we listen to the needs of our fellow students and help out when we can. There was once a point where I needed assistance, so it felt natural to be in a group like Ichabods Moving Forward that aims to help others in their time of need.

GRATITUDE

"With my deepest sincerity, thank you. I cannot tell you how much of a difference this makes. I feel like I can breathe again, and I had not realized how much of my energy and mental focus was spent on financial worries. I genuinely do not know what I would have done without your help and the generosity from the Ichabods Moving Forward program." – Nick

"Being an older non-traditional student is extremely difficult, but it’s even harder when you’re a First Gen, a single parent, AND a small business owner. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, my children and I experienced almost immediate challenges maintaining our stability that threatened my ability to remain in school. Without the help of Ichabods Moving Forward, I’m not sure where we would be until other economic aid becomes available. I am so so so thankful for the help we received during such an overwhelming time. It makes more of a difference to us, now and for our future, than words could ever quantify." - Bailey
