Hi friends! You might have heard me talk about Aim High before. In case you need a refresher, Aim High provides critical academic support and enrichment opportunities to low-income middle school youth across Northern California. Over five-weeks each summer, 2,300 students experience a blend of rigorous academics, social and emotional development, and college and career awareness. As an new member of the Young Leaders Board for Aim High, I have seen firsthand the incredible opportunities this program gives to thousands of students. In fact, 98% of Aim High alumni enroll in college, compared to 52% of low-income students nationally. That is staggering, and one of the reasons I am proud to be a part of this organization. Aim High’s program starts in 6 DAYS. Right now, they are 92% to their annual fundraising goal. Will you help them cross the finish line by investing today? As an added bonus, if you give by 11:59pm on June 26, your gift will be matched 2:1. That means your $10 contribution becomes $30, your $25 contribution becomes $75, and so on. Please visit http://www.aimhigh.org/32 to learn more and to give today. And, be sure to check out why teachers love Aim High. I will be continuing the fundraiser through out the year, as I've set a goal of $5000 to raise for Aim High for the year, so this page will stay live but I'm looking for a big push between now and when this summer's program starts!
