Over the past 29 years, College Bound's mission has been to prepare public and public charter school students in the metropolitan D.C. area to enter college, earn a degree, and achieve their personal and professional goals. None of this would be possible without the invaluable support of our partners who provide their time each week to ensure that our students have the tools they need to receive a college degree.
After receiving federal loans and grants, many students still owe thousands of dollars for tuition and expenses at their universities each semester. Students are often forced to "stop-out" of college with an extremely low return rate.
If each of you donated an average of $35, it will fund a College Bound scholarship, easily achieving our goal of raising $6,000. 100% of funds raised will be awarded at our 29th Annual End of the Year Celebration, which will be held virtually on May 21st. We all know that college is expensive and this scholarship award will be greatly appreciated by your students as they matriculate through college.
