2014 Summer Opportunities for Harlem Youth

THE STORY:

Harlem Educational Activities Fund is in need of financial resources to support its five-week Summer Quest Program. Summer Quest provides rigorous learning opportunities to underserved students throughout New York City.  Our goal is to ignite intellectual curiosity, cultivate academic development and prepare students for competitive exams.  Your gift to Summer Quest will allow 140 youth in the 6th through 9th grades to participate in this exciting program giving them the opportunity to make learning fun while achieving academic success. 

Here is how you can help us reach our goal:

DONATE INDIVIDUALLY:

Every dollar counts and your contributions are changing the lives of so many underserved youth.  All of your donations are tax-deductible.

SPREAD THE WORD:

By creating your own fundraising page for Summer Quest, you can set your own fundraising goal and spread the work about this important program even further.   

The Need
Research indicates that students lose critical academic skills during the summertime when they are not in school.  Low and middle income students suffer from this summer learning loss at significantly higher rates than their higher income peers.

Your Impact
Your generous donation will have a permanent impact on our students’ lives, helping to provide the resources they need to stay motivated during the summer and beyond. With your help, 100% of HEAF students graduate high school on time and are accepted to college, 83% earn their bachelor’s degrees, and 35% go on to graduate school.

Every gift to Summer Quest is meaningful and important.  We need to raise more than $200,000 each summer to make this program possible.  Our goal is to raise $25,000 through this online appeal over the next 5 weeks.

• $5,000 covers the costs of one math course for 20 students
• $2,500 supports 20 students learning in a creative arts course
• $1,000 pays for 60 hours of intensive test preparation
• $500 covers the materials for a science, technology, engineering or math project
• $250 funds a cultural outing for our Summer Quest™ students

Our appreciation for your generosity
HEAF will host a special appreciation event for everyone who creates their own fundraising page for this campaign.  All generous supporters of Summer Quest will receive a personalized thank you from a HEAF student with a photograph of the program in action.  We are also hosting an Open House on July 15th for interested supporters who would like to see the program in action and meet our students firsthand.  For more information, please contact Jacki Kelly at jkelly@heaf.org.
