Farther Foundation just celebrated its second birthday. By the end of this summer, we will have awarded more than $60,000 in scholarships enabling 32 deserving, low-income, high-achieving, high school students to participate in enrichment programs on 6 continents and 16 countries. We have partnered with 17 educational program providers and our scholarship winners have come from 21 Chicago area high schools. Each one of our past scholarship recipients who have now finished their high school education will be going to college in the fall – several to very prestigious schools (see our Mid-year report for details).
The success above is made possible because of donations from people like you. More than 120 different donors have supported Farther Foundation in our first two years.
One of our generous supporters has challenged us to raise at least $1,500 from new donors.
We have been offered a 2 : 1 Matching Gift Challenge:
$3,000 will be donated to Farther Foundation if we can raise $1,500 in donations from new donors by July 15, 2010. Here is a great way to support a life changing cause while getting a lot of bang for your buck.
Take a look at our Mid-year report to enjoy stories and photos by and about the students we support. If you are a past donor, please don’t forget us, we appreciate your generosity and need your continued support.
Farther Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization providing scholarships to low-income students to inspire them to reach their highest aspirations through educational travel experiences.
