We would not accomplish all that we do without the support of donors. Philanthropy means you support those around you to make sure they will have the opportunities to be successful and goal oriented. UHart helped me discover opportunities that I would not have at another school. UHart's dedication to providing aid to students is unmatched and a part of the reason I am here today."
