Dear Friends and Family,
Had Amy been in charge of this initiative, this email would have been in your inbox weeks ago. But alas, with 3 days remaining in March, we are urging you to support us in the iMentor challenge. As you know, Daniel works for this wonderful organization, whose aim is to support first generation high school students on the path to and through college. We are both mentors: Daniel’s mentee, Markenley, is a senior. Amy mentors a junior-aged girl named Beyonce who lives up to her name in all ways; please see their photo taken at the Alvin Ailey ballet below.
It would mean the world to us if you could support Markenley, Beyonce, and the thousands of NYC high school students who benefit from iMentor programming in this year’s iMentor Challenge. This is iMentor’s biggest annual fundraising campaign to support first generation high school students on their path to and through college. Many guidance counselors have caseloads of nearly 500 students. As mentors, we strive to provide support and access to resources to help our students prepare for, apply to, and succeed in college. We cherish the meaningful relationships we’ve developed with the students we mentor. We’ve also developed a strong set of college application skills that will come in handy 11 years from now!
Our fundraising goal is $1,000 and we would love your support to reach our goal by this Friday’s deadline.
We have all had individuals who have made an impact in our lives and with your help you can do the same.
Thanks in advance!
Daniel and Amy
It costs iMentor $1,000 to provide one mentor-mentee pair with access to iMentor’s proven college success curriculum and resources. Here is what your support can do for New York City’s students:
- $25 allows a mentee to attend a year of iMentor events
- $100 supplies a mentee with a year's access to monthly career and college preparation events
- $500 provides a college application event for an entire Junior class
- $1,000 supports the mentorship of one student as they work one-on-one with their mentor toward academic and personal success
