to pledge to do, bring about, or provide

At San Jacinto College, we’re making a promise to high school seniors and their families in the San Jacinto College taxing district to provide them with a debt-free degree. That means they no longer have to imagine how to pay for college. Their dreams, not their financial barriers, are taking center stage.

The Promise @ San Jac Scholarship sets the stage for success for our students and our communities. It gives students the chance to dream big and shine in careers without the burden of student debt. And it creates a stronger workforce in our communities that we know is important to you and critical to the economic success of our region.

By becoming a Promise @ San Jac donor, you play a vital role for future Promise Scholars by building a brighter future and stronger community.

Thanks to a generous donation and fundraising, we’re so close to our goal of raising $30 million that will fund Promise @ San Jac Scholarships in perpetuity. This is a Texas-sized goal, and we need your support to reach it.
