What faculty had to say about us...



"The Fast Fund has been a gift to many of our students not only in the Human Services program but to MATC students in general.  It has provided that needed bridge to allow students to remain in school versus leaving because they didn’t have the money to pay their rent or pay for their car to be fixed.  Fast Fund has provided the help when needed allowing students to retain dignity without making them feel like they are asking for a handout."





"Honestly, I don't know where to begin when it comes to expressing how much I appreciate the Fast Fund. In my role as a Pathway Advisor, I've interacted with many students who were faced with financial challenges unaware of what the next day brings. With my knowledge of the Fast Fund resource, I was able to connect them with understanding and empathetic individuals that exhausted all measures to support the student with their financial needs. I will always give my highest praise to the Fast Fund and will continue to advocate this resource for our students. Keep up the amazing work you do!"

"I have witnessed first-hand the benefits of the FAST Fund and have received positive feedback from nursing students. Students have expressed gratitude for the opportunity and have been able to move forward in the nursing program. I have observed students succeed in accomplishing their goals of becoming a nurse. I am hopeful the FAST Fund will continue to grow and meet the needs of many well-deserved students at MATC."
