Minds Matter of Los Angeles' Fundraiser:

Minds Matter: Transforming Lives Through Education

THE STORY:

Give the gift of a college education.

Thanks to everyone who has donated. With your help, we have exceeded our goal and secured a $15,000 matching grant from the Perlman Foundation.

Now, we're in the running for a big bonus award. To win, we need the highest percentage above our fundraising goal, and the most people donating.

This means we need everyone to donate. Even the smallest amount counts. Please, consider giving as little as $25. That's less than a round of holiday cheer! So, remember to donate before you head out to celebrate. Don't forget to ask your friends to donate, too.

We only have a few days left. The campaign ends on December 15th.

Minds Matter is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to transform the lives of accomplished high school students from low-income families by broadening their dreams and preparing them for college success.

Low-income students face many challenges when applying for university. Minds Matter provides a rigorous program of tutoring and mentoring, preparing our students with the skills they need to succeed in today's competitive college and university system.

We guide our students every step of the way through the admissions process, and help their families navigate the complicated process of applying for scholarships and financial aid.

Your donations help fund our program, providing valuable resources such as one-on-one tutoring and SAT test preparation. You will also help our students experience the enriching opportunity of attending academic summer school programs at leading colleges and universities.

Thank you for your support.

¹The maximum amount matched is $2,000 for any household/ donation. However, any donor or participant may contribute as much as they want.
