Countdown to College

Give help and hope to underserved students.

In February, we celebrated our 2020 cohort at College Dreams. A few short weeks later, we were caught in the COVID-19 crisis. Now, they are faced with a choice between funding their future and securing basic needs like housing, food, and medical care.

First-generation students are working harder than ever to secure a future that will provide economic opportunities for their families. They will be nurses, teachers, and business leaders.

But, more than 60% of our College Success students are worried that they can’t afford to return to school this Fall. Your help is more important than ever to remove barriers between these hardworking students and a brighter future.

You can help us reach this goal.

By June 30, we need to raise $13,000 to support students most impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. Countdown to College will college  scholarships and financial assistance for students in need.
