BENEFITING: BETTY SHABAZZ INTERNATIONAL CHARTER SCHOOL
Since 2014, graduating 8th graders from Barbrara A. Sizemore Academy (BASA) have visited Ohio State University for a chance to experience life “in college”. This initiative was created through our Young Scholars Program. The four-day trip gives students the opportunity to experience campus life.
While at the University, the students get to reside in dorms, eat in the cafeteria, and attend classes on campus as college students. They are also given the opportunity to participate in a science camp that focuses on solving real world problems by developing inventions for a sustainable green environment.
We believe that this experience is priceless because it plants the seed and desire for higher education in our students. We are excited to share our “BASA to the Buckeye State” fundraising campaign with you!
We need $10,000 and have already received a pledge of $5,000. So OUR goal is to MATCH that pledge. With your help, we know that we can raise $5,000 by May 31st. Donations will cover the expenses of the trip for all eligible graduating 8th grade students who deserve to be able to partake in this valuable experience.
Your gift will assist in making sure that no child is left behind and could end up being the very reason a child decides to go to college one day. We saved BASA from being closed, now let's send our students on a trip they'll never forget. Let's continue showing them how much we care about them and their education.
So help BASA get to the Buckeye State!
