Christmas Fund Drive
The 2023 Christmas Fund Drive launches Nov. 20 as we celebrate 75 years of generous giving. Since 1948 students have led the drive. Funds raised during this drive support our 2nd Century Fund, making up the difference between tuition investments and the actual cost of an EMS education. The fund also supports financial aid for many students, making the EMS experience possible for more families. Read more and consider supporting the drive!
