BENEFITING: Let's Get Ready
Thank you for considering supporting Let’s Get Ready's Portland chapter. We are a non-profit that provides low-income, refugee high school students with free SAT preparation, admissions counseling, and other support services needed to gain admission to and graduate from college. Bowdoin college students volunteer as coaches and mentors.
Why we need your help:
-Each semester, LGR Portland aims to take students on two college visits, but we are only given funding for one. We think it's important to show students multiple campuses - big and small - with a variety of academic strengths and extracurricular opportunities. Without these trips, many of our students would not be able to visit campuses before applying. $700 would fund our trip.
-A third of our students do not own calculators, which puts them at a major disadvantage on the SAT. Even inexpensive calculators pose a financial burden for our students, so we would like to provide them. $300 would make it possible for us to provide calculators to all our students in need.
We appreciate any size donation you're able to make - for our program, a little goes a long way.
