THE STORY:

Join me in playing a part to shape the futures of economically disadvantaged children in Detroit. Imagine the things these bright young students can accomplish to bring about positive change in Detroit and the world if they only have the resources they need to succeed! All donations will go directly to Beyond Basics. Read more about them below, or visit their website at www.beyondbasics.org.

The Mission of Beyond Basics:

Our mission is to guide and support children in economic need to develop fundamental educational skills. We aim to move these children beyond the basics and prepare them for productive and meaningful lives.

Changing Destiny Through Education:

Beyond Basics is a 501(c)(3) student-centered, literacy non-profit, serving students in Detroit public schools since 2002. We partner with principals and schools to bring students to literacy by providing reading, tutoring, and supplemental programs – writing, art, mentoring, and partnerships – throughout the school day for students in grades Pre-K through 12. In addition to providing these services, we provide free books to every student and parent that enters our classroom. The work done by Beyond Basics staff and volunteers has been proven to help school children in economically disadvantaged neighborhoods change their destinies. By significantly raising reading proficiency scores and providing multiple opportunities that cultivate and encourage curiosity, a love of learning, self-expression, character building and professional development, students gain a multitude of tools for success in the future.
