2020 College Access & Supplemental Scholarship Fundraising Grand Finale
By now you know post-high school education is the ticket to upward mobility. And you know about the need low-income student scholars have for essential financial support to excel in high school, and pursue college degrees and fruitful careers. As wealthier parents know, an exorbitant amount can be spent on cultivating a competitive candidate for college acceptance; then there’s ongoing day-to-day need for essentials besides housing and tuition for 4 years.
Full scholarship recipients have these needs as well in high school and college and the All Out for Change® College Access Fund & Supplemental Scholarship Awards pitch in via supporters in the way of cash donations, gift cards, and computers.
YOUR DONATION IN ITS ENTIRETY IS INVESTED IN OUR STUDENT SCHOLARS

Did You Know? Food Insecurity Exists on Campuses
Regarding the day-to-day help, food is among the essentials for students from first generation working-class and low-income families! I will personally gift $25 to the George Washington University student-run food pantry, The Store, providing: food, basic hygiene products, and school supplies, and more. I’ll be donating a couple of my coats and kitchen supplies as well.
According to The Store’s faculty advisor I’ve met, students they serve include undergrads, graduate, law and medical school students. They noted an increased “very high demand” among this semester’s 500 residential students. The demand will likely double or triple during spring semester with the arrival of 1000 more residential students.
