Give Low-Income Students a Real Chance at a College Education!

Only 14% of students from low-income backgrounds complete college. Let's change that!!

$2,250 towards $3,000

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page.

Just a small donation will go a long way to help Education First give scholarships and college coaching to low-income students to help them overcome the obstacles they face to college success.

Education First is different. We don't target the student with the perfect GPA. Other scholarships do that. Rather, we find students who have overcome significant obstacles and are determined to make a better life for themselves and their families. These students are often the first in their family to attend college, and benefit not just from the financial assistance we provide but from the support and encouragement of a college coach.

Thank you for supporting us!
