CROSBY SCHOLARS COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP ANNOUNCES GIVING DAY FOR JUNE 6, 2018
The Crosby Scholars Community Partnership – Crosby Scholars Program – announces its first giving day on Tuesday, June 6, 2018 in celebration of National Higher Education Day.
During the Crosby Scholars Program Giving Day, donors can make gifts at crosbyscholars.org on June 6 from midnight through 11:59 p.m. Gifts received during this time will celebrate the Crosby Scholars Program’s spirit of giving back and help fund future programs. Support from the Winston-Salem community is essential in helping the 11,600 Forsyth County public school students achieve their dream of college through our tuition-free year-round academic enhancement programs and scholarship assistance.
This year’s theme, For the Next 25, asks alumni, parents and community members what they can do to help the Crosby Scholars Partnership thrive for the next 25 years. The donation they make within this special 24-hour period can impact the future of the organization, benefit future students and build a high-quality academic experience.
Each individual’s participation, not the amount of the gift, matters most. Donors will be able to make online gifts to support the many areas of service that the Crosby Scholars Program provides public school students free of charge. These 12 highlighted areas of support are: AAMPED program, Crosby Bigs for Success, Crosby Club, Excelencia Program, Exitosos Program, High School Program, Last Dollar Grants, Scholarships, Middle School Program, Senior Program, S.H.E. program and Unidos Programs.
Through the Crosby Scholars Program social media sites, donors will be able to keep track of the day’s progress as well as share their donations to their followers. Crosby Scholars Program supporters are encouraged to use the #crosbynext25 to follow the day’s success.
