Empower: that is what Emersonians do. Through creativity, communication, innovation, and art. Through advocacy and justice. Emersonians empower each other, and they empower those who may not be able to empower themselves.
And that is what your gift to the Empower Fund will do; through unrestricted support, you will help to create unrestricted possibilities. Your gift will help support students in all aspects of their Emerson career. It will encourage creativity and enable innovation, while strengthening confidence and autonomy. Your gift will empower Emersonians.
