SEND BRONX STUDENTS TO COLLEGE
Organized by: Emily Sintz
Fannie Lou Hamer Freedom High School is raising money to pay for our students' college applications so they can go to college. Our students are guaranteed acceptance to a CUNY college and receive good financial aid, BUT the CUNY application costs $65 per student, which our students cannot afford.
Located in the South Bronx, Fannie Lou Hamer has effectively served low-income, at-risk students for the past 20 years. Our graduation rates are higher than the city-wide averages and 98% of our students apply to and get accepted to college. All of our students qualify for free lunch and most of them are the first in their family to go to college.
Our students are serious, college-bound students who need help overcoming this financial hurdle in order to ensure that they get accepted to and go to college. Just $65 can be the difference between our students going to college or not.
All donations would be greatly appreciated. And just think...... every $65 raised sends another student to college!!!
