What We Do
Our program selects promising students (Scholars) in the fourth grade whose families lack the financial resources to afford college. Scholars are then matched with individuals or families (Partners) who agree to pledge $100/month for 10 years toward a college investment/savings fund. Partners also agree to contact their Scholar regularly to provide encouragement and guidance over that 10-year period. In addition, Scholars participate in community events designed to motivate and encourage them to succeed academically.
