Education Resources for Students

$730 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 6 people in 30 months

Who am I?

I am Stan Lemons, speaker and author of the book Expanding College Opportunity. I have a passion for education and helping students pursue their dreams. 

Why am I raising money?

I am raising money to produce copies of the Expanding College Opportunity book and student workbook. The books will be donated to low-income students around the country.  Why is this important? When you consider that 40% of low income students don't go to college because they believe they can't afford it (The Hechinger Report), the need to close the information gap is all the more important. The Expanding College Opportunity book and student workbook, along with my college admissions workshops, are valuable tools to help with this cause.

How will the money be used?

The funds that I raise will cover the costs associated with producing and distributing the books. I plan to distribute the Expanding College Opportunity books and student workbooks during the 2017-2018 school year.  If donors would like copies of the Expanding College Opportunity book and student workbook so that you can distribute the resources to groups of your choosing, I would be happy to provide you with copies. For every $30 you contribute, I can provide you with one book and one student workbook.

Stan, I think this is a great idea. I will share the books with low income clients of the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights and Economic Justice in Boston, which I co-chair.
