    Support our student veterans 

    Dear Friends of San Jacinto College,

    Our veterans have given themselves in service for our freedom. For the last year, San Jacinto College and its partners have been creating a fund to build Centers of Excellence for Veteran Student Success on each campus to give back to these warriors.   With a total project cost of $600,000, the SJC community, architects, contractors, and vendors have supplied nearly $300,000 worth of labor, materials, and facility space.  At this point, we are half way to our goal.

    Now, we need your help!

    Please remember our veterans.

    You can view a rendering of the Centers of Excellence for Veteran Student Success at:

    Visit the San Jacinto College Foundation website at sanjacfoundation.org to find out how you can help support our student veterans.

    *Note:   To honor your veteran on our Wall of Honor include name(s) in the comment section with your gift.
    Payroll deduction is available for SJC employees.
