Gator Pledge


The Green River College Foundation comitted to removing barriers to a college education and to build pathways to great careers. The Gator Pledge is a resource aimed to give staff and faculty the ability to “Say Yes” to students and help them over come the financial barriers to enrolling, continuing, and completing their educational programs at Green River College.

What is the Gator Pledge?

The Gator pledge is a promise to every student who is pursuing their education goals at Green River College will have the financial support necessary to do so. By helping students close small (usually less than $500), but critical financial gaps that would otherwise cause a student to drop out, the Gator Pledge is giving the ability to Staff and Faculty across campus to SAY YES! when help is needed – at the earliest possible moment.

Who benefits from The Gator Pledge?

Any student who has a financial need that would otherwise cause them to struggle. It can be books, testing fees, or a myriad of other unexpected expenses…or sometimes just a meal. By putting funds in the hands of caring faculty and staff that have a direct line to students, needs can be addressed quickly. 

How is The Gator Pledge Funded? 

The Gator Pledge is funded by private donations through the Green River College Foundation. If you are interesting in helping fund this initiative contact the foundation at 253-288-3330 or
