Dearest Friends and Family,
As many of you know, I am very connected to the work that I do. For the last 6 years I have had the privilidge to work for SMART, an educational non-profit that provides an 8-year support network to low-income first generation college students in San Francisco.
For 17 years, SMART has employed a collaborative approach to expanding educational opportunities for low-income students and families. Through the development of an expansive network of referral partners, private middle and high school partners, volunteer tutors and mentors, and community-based organizations, the SMART community is contributing to an educational network that expands access, support, and choice for motivated, under-served students. Through recent expansion efforts, SMART has tripled the number of students served, and we are continuing work to serve even more students, create more robust partnerships, and position ourselves as community leaders in an effort to provide educational choice, opportunity, and equity for deserving low-income San Francisco students.
Recognizing that there are many wonderful organizations and programs to donate to this holiday season, thank you for considering a contribution to SMART.
