Urban College Application Fund

Organized by: Chantal Blakeney

THE STORY:

As a high school teacher at The O'Farrell Charter School in San Diego, I'm working on college packages with my juniors (AP English Language and American Literature) and finding that some are highly qualified but not subsidized for college applications, despite the low income neighborhood in which I work. Because of this, some are only planning to apply to 1-3 schools. Anyone who is familiar with the college process knows that it is imperative that a larger range of schools be applied to, in order to increase chances of acceptance. More than increasing chances of acceptance, this increases student choice and equity. The American Dream is that, regardless of background, people can work hard and pursue their dreams. I've been telling students that since Freshman year, and watching them approach the finish line and finding financial roadblocks is grossly unjust.

I am fundraising for the students who are unsubsidized at my school, so that they can each afford to apply to 7-10 colleges. ALL money will go directly to their college applications, and students will be actively involved in the fundraising process.  Any leftover money will go to students in the same situation next year.  

I am in the process of launching a non-profit, so if you are interested in contributing to this foundation in the future, please let me know. Thank you for anything that you can contribute. If you are local, please ask about visiting my classroom to meet some of these deserving students.
