Time to Help Deserving Students

LesterFor more than three years now, Farther Foundation has been changing the trajectory of young lives – identifying eager and deserving students from some of the most impoverished and isolated communities in the Chicago area, and providing opportunities for them to travel across the country and around the world to participate in unique and life changing educational programs.

Our older program alumni are enrolling into college at a 100% rate while our younger alumni are progressing on a similar path. This is a remarkable achievement for kids from a population with disturbingly low high school graduation rates.

Year-end giving accounts for nearly 90% of our scholarship budget each year. Our friends and supporters will soon be receiving our year-end appeal in their mailboxes and email inboxes. We are so pleased with the design and print team that helped us put together this year’s message. Our thanks to the design team at Push Communications and our print rep Matt Claybour at Classic Color, they brought a creative spark to the project and were great to work with. Take a peak now online and please support our students with a donation today.

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.

    This is truly a remarkable opportunity for those willing to expose themselves to an entirely brand new culture. Giving deserving students the chance to explore academic ventures is not something that is typically done everyday. The Farther Foundation should be commended for bringing about these scholarships for the youth.
