A Better Chance Celebrates a Record-Breaking Giving Tuesday

This season of thankfulness and giving, we exceeded our fundraising goal by 39%.

We are delighted to share the news of our record-breaking Giving Tuesday total with you. With your support, we raised $23,041.18!  

This is $6,470.18 over our original goal of $16,571. Over the course of the day there were a multitude of comments shared and many individuals who shared our campaign on Facebook with their network of friends and family. To see the comments, names and final barometer total (also attached) please visit the First Giving page, linked here.

This incredible leap forward in Giving Tuesday generosity was made possible by 210 donors who came together to celebrate A Better Chance this giving season. 

For every Scholar you helped give A Better Chance, we thank you!

If you missed this opportunity to give, never fear - you can donate now and join the ranks of donors whose support is absolutely essential to our continuing ability to serve academically talented children of color along their paths to become future leaders.
