Dear Investors of the Future,

 

Options for College Success is a not-for-profit organization located in Evanston, IL. We are committed to helping young adults with learning disabilities realize their full potential. We take an individualized approach to develop skills, courage, and confidence necessary to transition to independent living and work-life. Our program focuses on six areas of a student’s life: academic support, career advising, independent living skills, financial management, social skills, and social activities. We provide these customized services via a residential, day, or Skype program.

 

Over the past 10 years, we have successfully supported 225 students in achieving their vocational, academic, and personal goals. Although we have had great success, there are still a large number of post-secondary students who could benefit from our services. Unfortunately, their participation is restricted due to financial burdens. With this mind, we greatly appreciate any gift amount to help us establish a scholarship fund!

 

The purpose of our scholarship fund is to provide students who are in need of our services with financial support. This scholarship applies to all local students who enroll in our programs. Our goal is to raise $5,000 for the scholarship fund which will allow us to help 21 students in total (5-$400, 7-$200, 9- $100).

 

Thank you for reading our story. We appreciate your time, monetary gifts, and commitment to helping the leaders of tomorrow realize their full potential.

 

With Gratitude,

Options for College Success
