THE STORY:

Dear Friends & Family,

Hope all is well! I am involved with iMentor, an organization that connects students throughout New York City with mentors from around the area. I have been mentoring Valentin, a sophomore from Frederick Douglass Academy II in Harlem, for about a year and a half, and will continue the program until his graduation in 2019. The organization facilitates weekly online activities and monthly in-person events, focusing on college prep and real world skills such us budgeting, resume building, etc.

We are seeking donations of any size so iMentor can continue expanding into new schools, giving more students the opportunity of connecting with a mentor. Any support, whether financial or otherwise, would be much apprecaited. Feel free to reach out if you have any other questions. Thank you! 

The Fundraiser: 

Now, more than ever, we need to show our students that there are countless people across the country who care deeply about them, who stand with them and who will do whatever it takes to help them achieve their ambitions.

The iMentor Challenge is our chance to do just that. It's a community-driven crowdfunding campaign powered by our mentors and their friends, families and colleageues. 

Crowdrise makes it easy, fun and effective for mentors to share their story and raise crucial dollars to connect even more students with mentors. Three hundred more students to be exact. We’re going big this year and looking to raise $300,000 so we can bring iMentor to a whole new school in New York City.

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
