Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. I have been working with Education First for several years, and can see the impact first-hand of our scholarships given each year.
Just a small donation will go a long way to help Education First give scholarships and college coaching to low-income students. Through higher education, our scholars want to leave generational poverty.
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. Our scholars are often the first in their families to graduate from college and are setting the example for their siblings to do the same.
Thank you for supporting my efforts,
