Daughters College Tuition

$3,294 of $9,164 goal

Raised by 30 people in 33 months
Im a father of four wonderful children.  This year marks the first time I have two in college.  From the very beginning, I have stressed that they be goal oriented and work hard to obtain those goals.  They have done just that.  My oldest is entering her last year of undergrad at the University of Michigan.  She is a Chemical Engineering major with two internships under her belt.  Her sister is about to enter her first year at Loyola University of Chicago.  She is a Bio-Medical Engineering major.  Not too bad - my first children out the house are a soon to be Engineer and a future Doctor.  They held up their end of the bargain, now Dad has to hold up his end.

So after all the scholarships and grants, there is still a bit of a gap.  These two schools combined are nearly $100K a year.  Im not an engineer nor a doctor, so Im not swimming in money - BUT I grind daily to give my kids everything they need and put them in the best opportunities.  I can not even explain how proud I am of Erin N. Branton and Robin D. Branton.  This year I just need a little push - we are $9,164 short.

My love and dedication for my children can not be measured.  Please help me keep these girls on the path to their dreams.  Every dollar counts. 

I am an artist.  With higher donations Im giving a gift of art valued at DOUBLE of whatever you donate..... even if that means painting a mural in residential or business spaces.  Stay blessed and spread love.

Only 3% of Chemical Engineers are Black Females - my daughter Erin joins that group in one week. She has worked hard over the last four years.

Robin has followed in her sisters footsteps with her hard work. Her first year is coming to a close and she currently has a 3.7 GPA while she chases her dream of being a doctor.

I tell my children all the time that its my job to make them better than me. I teach them the importance of every generation building on the last. I want so badly for my children and grandchildren to know what its like to start off their adulthood with a leg up - not to be in debt - and heaven forbid, have some type of fund. The scales in America were never tipped in our favor - but I won't let that be an excuse. My daughter can't register for classes yet ...... I will not fail her

I enjoyed spending a little time with Robin this Easter weekend. Erin was unable to get home because she was traveling to Boston earlier in the week for an engineering conference. This year is zoomed by. In one month Erin will have a degree in Chemical Engineering and Robin would have completed her 1st year of undergrad as she gets one step closer to being a doctor. BOTH of them carry a G.P.A. well above 3.5 .... I couldn't be prouder. If you would like help out with their rising tuition cost it would be greatly appreciated. It's crunch time.

Robin took a break from campus life this afternoon to meet her cousins that are in town on break. It's been nine years since they've seen each other and now they both are living the college life.....
