BENEFITING: The Wily Network Inc
For many youth with foster care experience, transitioning to college also means transitioning out of or away from systems of support. A student who attends college without a permanent family faces new obstacles every day. Constant struggle can lead a student to think, I don’t belong here. The Wily message is, Yes you do:College is for you. Ensuring that these young people gain admission to college is critical, but our charge does not end at the college gates or on move-in day. The Wily Network can give these deserving scholars a college experience that is commensurate with those of their peers. We can walk by their side from their transition onto campus through college graduation. In order to help these students, we need your help. The Wily Network has received a matching grant of up to $50,000. With a dollar-for-dollar match for every donation we receive, your gift will count twice as much. Please help us reach our goal of raising $100,000 with this appeal.
