BENEFITING: Close Up Foundation

EVENT DATE: Dec 03, 2013

THE STORY:

Donate today to help inform, inspire and empower young people to become active citizens in our democracy. 

We believe that in order for democracy to thrive participation from individuals from all backgrounds is required and it is critical to our mission to provide outreach and support for those from economically and politically disadvantaged communities. Unfortunately the current state of civic engagement among these groups is troubling.  According to CIRCLE, “Non-white, poor, and/or immigrant youth…demonstrate consistently lower levels of civic and political knowledge, skills, positive attitudes, and participation, as compared to their wealthier and white counterparts. As a result, they face serious political disadvantages.” Our program seeks to bridge this “civic achievement gap” and help inform, inspire, and empower young people from all walks of life.

Thanks to the support of our philanthropic donors and partners, Close Up provides 25% of program participants with income need-based scholarships. The average family income for Close Up scholarship recipents is $29,000/year.
