The pandemic crisis impacts all of us – and uniquely shines a spotlight on the critical needs of students during school closures and community lockdowns. Health, well-being, and education of our youth is very important.
Your gift to Future Sacramento during Big Day of Giving will help:
- make college possible for first-in-family college students.
- sustain college scholarships for this year and beyond
- covid-19 crisis relief for students negatively affected
- provide increased mentoring for students grappling with school closures
During this difficult time, Future Sacramento has increased work with students to ensure they remain supported on their journeys to and through college. Both high school and college students have faced challenge after challenge since early March – about 60 days and counting… Students, especially those from low-income households, continue to need more assistance and guidance to cope with uncertainty and continual changes to their education as they end this school year and prepare for the next.
