Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. I strongly believe in iMentor's work, so to double your impact, I’ll match your donations $-for-$ (up to $3,000 total).
Dear Colleagues, Friends and Family,
As some of you know, I've been working with an organization named iMentor since 2007, both as a mentor and, for two of those years, as co-chair of its Young Executive Board. The program connects working folks like myself with high school students in low-income communities across NYC.
Here's my favorite stat about the program: In 2011, 83% of iMentor’s 12th graders graduated high school compared to the average NYC graduation rate of 63%. Put differently, students enrolled in iMentor are less than half as likely to drop out of high school.
My first mentee, Ricardo, graduated from the Bronx Academy of Letters high school before becoming the second member of his family to attend college. I'm also extremely proud of my current mentee, Rickey, who was recently accepted into college.
Over the past three years, you've helped me raise $8,500 for the cause. This year, I'm shooting for $4,000. I hope you'll consider helping me get there!
PS - iMentor is growing so can always use great mentors. If you are interested in becoming a mentor, please let me know! You can also find more info here: http://www.imentor.org/become-a-mentor
