Now, through Giving Tuesday on December 1, you have the unique opportunity to contribute and help 25 scholars begin their collegiate careers.
For our scholars, college begins on day one.
For Giving Tuesday 2020, we have set a goal of raising $12,500 to help secure real-life college experiences for our scholars. Giving Tuesday is on December 1st and is a holiday that promotes charity. This year, we ask that you consider donating to Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy.
We are asking for your help to sustain our innovative dual-enrollment program and help fund 25 scholars who are ready to begin their college journey today. The program gives scholars a jump start on their post-secondary education by dual-enrolling in one of our partner schools: UW-Milwaukee, Milwaukee Area Technical College or Gateway College. Scholars can take courses like technology information, business, marketing, sociology, criminal justice, and more on their pathway to college.
Many of our scholars have begun their pathway through dual-enrollment to college and their experiences are exemplary. Senior Jadius McGhee has been accepted into 30 colleges and has already earned over $1 million in scholarship dollars. Another senior scholar, Takyrah Bealer, has been accepted into 19 colleges and has earned over $500,000 in scholarship dollars. Here is what some of our dual-enrollment scholars had to say about their experiences:
“I’m grateful that HFCA provides me the opportunity to have this experience. It really exemplifies the belief in our mission and a ‘to and through college’ mindset,” says Jadius, who has taken courses at both Gateway Technical College and UW-Milwaukee. “Dual enrollment classes are very important to me because they prepare me now for what’s next in my journey to success.”
“It shows me that I am capable of doing college-level work.” says Nasondra, an HFCA junior who is a member of HFCA’s student-led Technology Ambassador Program that provides Level 1 technology support to over 350 students and staff. This semester, Nasondra is taking a course in Informational Technology at Gateway Technical College.
“I like it because now I know that I can take on more even challenges. It allows me to earn college credit early, and I am learning about things that really interest me,” Nasondra explains. “I am grateful for the opportunity to take these courses because I know this gives me a taste of college; I will earn early credit toward my degree, and it builds my confidence that I am capable of performing college-level work.”
“I am so grateful that I’ve had the opportunity to take college classes since my junior year at HFCA,” says senior Takyrah Bealer who is taking a course at UW-Milwaukee. “It gives me a real taste of college. I am earning early credit toward my degree, and it builds my confidence that I am capable of performing college-level work. I also feel like this gives me a competitive edge when applying to colleges.”
“I know many more of my classmates would benefit from this opportunity.” Bealer says. “I know that I am just getting started!”
With your assistance, we can expand this program and provide wonderful opportunities to even more scholars. Now through Giving Tuesday on December 1, you can contribute and help 25 scholars begin their collegiate careers. Help us continue to make our promise of guiding scholars to and through college a reality.
