Support the NextGen Responders Student Fund
The Fire Protection and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) departments at Madison College are investing more resources to introduce youth to educational opportunities and careers as first responders, and we need your help!
By donating to the NextGen Responders Student Fund, you can help us transition more high school students into programs and careers in Fire and EMS after graduation, especially those who are traditionally underrepresented or face financial hardships. Low-income students are 20% more likely to drop out of their protective services program.
All donations directly benefit Fire and EMS students exclusively by removing barriers to their academic and career goals. Your contribution will help students pay for tuition, buy textbooks, access reliable transportation, purchase required technology and materials, and secure adequate housing, food, and other personal needs.
Every dollar donated helps more students prepare for careers as first responders in your community! Thank you for your support!
Donate Using a Credit Card or Bank Account
Please note: Processing fees are no longer automatically taken out of your credit card donation, meaning the Foundation receives your full gift.
However, the donation form now has a pop-up that will ask you to give an additional amount to your gift to support the external processing platform. This is optional, and the Foundation DOES NOT receive those funds and we cannot see if you have opted to contribute to it. Please feel free to say no to this request.
