Close Ties Spring Break College Tour 2019

Close Ties Leadership Program is an organization that empowers young men to enhance their skills in our five core principles of Brotherhood, Leadership, Altruism, Chivalry, and Knowledge. Instead of sleeping in and relaxing, the members of Close Ties Leadership Program will spend their spring break chasing their dreams on their way to and through college on our Third Annual Spring Break College Tour. This year we will travel to Duke University and South Carolina State University!

Taking 25 boys on a four day trip is an expensive undertaking but it's also a life-changing trip for many of them who may not be exposed to college-life otherwise. With that said, they have worked tirelessly this year to fundraise thousands of dollars for this trip but we need your help to ensure that all 25 young men are able to embark on this amazing experience. 

Your tax deductible donations will be used to cover lodging, travel, activity, and meal expenses. We thank you in advance for investing in our future scientists, nurses, teachers, entrepreneurs, doctors, engineers, and leaders of America!  Please use the funding package guide below to help us meet our goal. Any donation amount is appreciated! 

Fundraising Packages:
Bronze: $25 – Covers travel expenses 
Silver: $75 – Covers food or activities expenses 
Gold: $125 – Covers lodging expenses 
Platinum: $300 – Covers full cost of trip
