Yale Summer College

$13,404 of $13.3k goal

Raised by 221 people in 32 months
Hello everyone, 

I hope this message finds you well. I was recently accepted to prestigious summer college programs at Yale, Stanford, and Brown Universities. In addition, I was accepted to this year's Yale Writers' Conference. However, to attend one of these programs I have to contribute nearly the full cost of tuition. Owing to extremely challenging financial circumstances, I am unable to contribute much. As such, I have to raise money to attend one of the programs. Thank you very kindly in advance for your support!

Appreciatively, 

Zachary Wood

Thank you so much to everyone who has donated thus far. Your contributions are immensely appreciated. I have increased my goal to $12,500 to encompass the full cost of tuition, room, and board along with travel and other things needed for me to spend the summer at Yale.

Hi Zach! Great idea doing a funding campaign... I wish you all the best in getting enough money to go. Wish I could donate but I am doing an americorps program this year! I wanted to reach out to you because I graduated from Williams last year (I believe you're attending Williams in the fall?) and I live in ward 8 also. Let me know if you need anyone to talk to about transitioning to Williams or anything else :-) best wishes! Dominique dcexume@gmail.com

Zachery, I wish you only the best in your educational endeavors! If you study as hard as you mobilize a team of supporters, I do believe you could be the President of the United States one day. For now though, keep taking advantage of what life sends your way and if nothing else, you'll have a fulfilling life and probably find many ways to make a difference!

You may have raised your goal already, but have you seen what textbooks cost? I consider this an investment in a sure thing, because you've already shown that whatever you do, you will do it well. Trust yourself.

Your story should be one of inspiration to many students in similar situations that encounter hardship daily. Only goes to show what determination and perseverance can do. You will make it to the top - no doubt about it. Congratulations a million times!!!!
