BENEFITING: iMentor

ORGANIZER: iMentor

THE STORY:

Hi All,

I got involved with iMentor last year, and have had a phenomenal experience with both my mentees Brian and Alije. Helping these high school kids navigate the college application process has been rewarding in its own right, and better yet we’ve become genuine friends.  I recognize the cliché, but really do feel like I'm learning more from them than they’re learning from me.

I really don’t like fundraising, but I'm asking for a donation, because this is a cause I really stand behind, and can say with full confidence that this organization is making a meaningful difference.  At the broad level the statistics on mentored student graduation rates are convincing, and at the individual level it's been so neat to make a real connection and help Brian an Alije with the college process.

It’s been a busy month, and I've procrastinated on this - the fundraiser ends soon!  If you feel like helping out, do it as soon as possible.  Any donation you are able to make will be helpful and huge thank you in advance for your support.   

Best, Jim

 

 

 

Donor Drive Makes a Difference
Funds raised will help iMentor match more than 1,800 students with mentors this year. It costs $1,000 for iMentor to provide each mentor-mentee pair with access to quality programming and resources. Every donation you give or raise—whether $10 or $1,000—will make you part of a team that is having a lasting impact on the life of a high school student.

Last year, our Donor Drive team broke our online fundraising record and brought in more than $86,000 for iMentor’s programs. This year we aim to shatter that record, and with your help, raise over $125,000 to support mentor-mentee pairs in New York City.

Why We Do This
“[My mentor] helped me realize that if I want to succeed, I have to do better. She’s helped me learn the steps on how to become a better person and also a better student. I want to succeed.”–Emily, mentee

The donor drive is about Emily, and the thousands of students like her, who have the potential to do great things. Students in low-income communities need the support from mentors to graduate high school and succeed in college. In New York, only 37 percent of all students graduated high school college-ready in 2011. To build college-readiness for students in low-income communities, iMentor matches students with mentors who work with them one-on-one to help them graduate high school, navigate the college application process, and develop critical skills that lead to college success.

Spread the word and get everyone in your network involved in this year’s Online Donor Drive. It’s not every day that you can say you helped change a life, but today can be that day.
