SAN ANTONIO, May 9, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Ellucian, the leading higher education technology solutions provider, today announced a successful partnership with four local charities during Ellucian Live 2024, the industry’s premier global technology conference held in San Antonio.

Throughout the conference, kits were assembled by more than 170 attendees, and San Antonio-based Alamo Colleges District provided student and administrative volunteers to assist attendees with kit assembly.

“Wherever we host Ellucian Live, our goal is to leave the city a little better than we found it,” said Kirsten Weeks, Senior Director, Strategic Operations and ESG, Ellucian. “By partnering with local charities in San Antonio, our attendees from across the globe had an opportunity to make a significant impact on the lives of those facing adversity in the region. We believe strongly in the power of collaboration and community engagement to drive positive change, and this partnership exemplifies our commitment to uplifting the communities who are our gracious hosts.”

Local charity partners include:

  • San Antonio Food Bank: Provides emergency food assistance to families in Southwest Texas.
  • Endeavors: Offers comprehensive services to families in crisis, including veterans and their families.
  • Thrive Youth Center: Offers LGBTQ+ homeless young adults a safe and supportive environment.
