2020 Administrative Transition

Administrative Transition from Southern Adventist University to the SFFC Foundation, March 2020

It is with both excitement and sadness that we announce the administrative transition of the Assist and Partnering for Eternity (PFE) grant programs away from Southern Adventist University, to the SFFC Foundation. Southern has been blessed with the opportunity to administer Assist and PFE since 2006 and 2014, respectively. We cherish the relationships built between our mentor and mentee participants, and well as between Southern and our partner schools, and we wish success and blessings to all who will continue taking part in these programs in the coming years. The SFFC Foundation founded these grant programs in partnership with Southern and has been a behind-the-scenes supporter and partner since Assist and PFE grant inception. We are fully confident the programs will continue to prosper in their hands.

 Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work out the details to make this transition as seamless as possible for you and your students.

 Please note:

  • Southern Adventist University will continue to administer the programs for the remainder of the 2019-2020 academic year.
  • Since all of our IT efforts are directed toward transitioning our new website to the SFFC Foundation and preparing the 2020-2021 grant applications, we are unable to make the reflection reporting website available for everyone’s use this academic year. Our deepest apologies to all who have been waiting on this great new technology. As unforeseen circumstances arise, we strive to take the best course of action.
  • For any questions about the transition, please email us at pfe@southern.edu or assist-program@southern.edu. This will help us answer them as effectively as possible and also keep the SFFC Foundation in the loop while maintaining a paper trail of your questions.

 Stay tuned for upcoming information:

  • Grant application and reflection reporting website—applications expected in April/May.
  • 2020-2021 team member orientations.
  • Email addresses and phone numbers for the new contacts at the SFFC Foundation.

It is our deepest desire to see Seventh-day Adventist education succeed at all levels. Thank you for your commitment to your students, their families, and your schools.

-Your Southern Adventist University Assist and PFE Team
