BENEFITING: Harlem Educational Activities Fund, Inc.
I've just started to volunteer with HEAF and have already seen what amazing students they work with! Please consider donating to HEAF's first online campaign fundraiser: 11x11! A little can go along way to help these students achieve their goals and develop a passion for learning. Thanks so much for your help! The goal is to raise $11,000 in 11 days from March 21 - March 31. The 11 x 11 giving campaign is about the power of the masses. We might not have a lot to give, but if we all do a little, we can dramatically make a difference. We graciously ask to give what you can, whether it's $11, or more. And we hope you will ask 11 of your friends to do the same. It's give $11 and ask 11. It's that simple. The Harlem Educational Activities Fund (HEAF) is an extraordinary college prep and leadership program founded in 1989 by Daniel and Joanna Rose. HEAF was established in response to a compelling need to close the opportunity gaps in public education confronting underserved minorities in Harlem and Washington Heights. Since that time, we have expanded our reach of the "forgotten middle" to include students from four of the five boroughs attending over 100 public schools across the city. HEAF creates pathways to college and the professional world for nearly 600 low-income New York City minority youth each year, by providing resources that help them achieve higher education, fulfilling careers, and greater lifetime earnings.
