Unbelievable - $12K in 10 DAYS!

November 15, 2018

Due to the overwhelming generosity of our donors, we surpassed our initial goal of $12,000 in just over one week! This is incredible! We are blown away by your support. 

When we launched this fundraiser, we had no idea how many of you shared our vision of expanding higher education behind bars. Your extraordinary support has inspired us to set a second goal of raising a total of $20,000 to ensure that we can offer these college courses after the spring semester. The more you give, and the more you share our project, the more we can do The extra funds raised not only sustains the program while we establish long-term funding, but it also demonstrates that our community truly believes in our mission. 

Please help spread the word! We are deeply grateful for every donation - even just a few dollars. Copy and paste the link below:
