Ways to Give

Because of you...

a woman holds a sign about how she found confidence at Otero

Your generosity supported over $66,000 in scholarships during the 2016-2017 academic year for deserving students who are pursuing their dreams. In addition to scholarships, your support provides funds to support continued excellence and expansion of programs at Otero.

Many lives are touched by your donations. Not only are the students' lives touched, but so are those of their families, their communities and those they go on to serve once they have completed their education and enter the workforce. 

The spirit and generosity of our donors makes it possible for us to continually serve the students who are the link to our future and the communities where we live.  Thank you!
