Empowering promising Children to rise to their potential

Introducing: Bridges of Hope For All.

When schools closed their doors due to COVID, thousands of kids were cut off from school and learning opportunities. The data is in, and COVID has indeed caused devastating learning losses.

Despite the urgent need, there are glimmers of hope.

COVID has created a landscape where our educators are solving the digital divide, creating new opportunities to assist the children in ways never before possible. I invite you to join us in building Bridges of Hope for All. Generous partners will match every dollar you donate by November 30th (Giving Tuesday), up to $70,000.
