BENEFITING: OneGoal

ORGANIZER: OneGoal

EVENT: Giving Tower Holiday Challenge

Laura Cummings

THE STORY:

Hi friends! M any of you know I am a first-generation college graduate, and have dedicated my work to improving public education in Chicago for the past 12 years. Too often, I've worked with students with ambitious dreams for themselves and promising futures, who haven't made it across the finish line due to real barriers that exist in our education system.  Now, at OneGoal, I'm part of an incredible solution - a cost-effective and scalable model focused on helping students eliminate roadblocks so they can walk proudly across the college graduation stage, opening up life opportunities and choices.  This holiday season, please help us add more open seats to our program so more deserving students get to have these opportunities.  My goal is to rasie the cost of providing OneGoal to 2 more students in Chicago- at only $800/student - and hopefully more!  How many seats will we fill together?
Thanks for considering! 

Laura 

"All I needed was a goal in sight and some fire under my feet. My OneGoal teacher showed me I had to want to go to college like I wanted to breathe air."

- Tyrese OneGoal Alumnus

OUR CHARGE

We have seats to fill…

Only 9% of students from low-income communities graduate from college. TOGETHER WE CAN CHANGE THAT! OneGoal’s mission is to close the college divide by enlisting and training our nation’s best educators to reach historically underserved high school students how to enroll in and complete college.

YOUR CHALLENGE

Help us fill the open seats

OneGoal has entered the CrowdRise Giving Tower Holiday Challenge.  With a few simple clicks, YOU can help us meet our goal of winning the grand prize of $100,000 - awarded to the non-profit that raises the most up to January 7.  Every dollar toward this campaign allows us to serve deserving students across Chicago Public Schools. 

Help us write the next chapter, as we recruit our next cohort of Fellows. With your support they'll be the College Graduating Class of 2022!
