A 100 students coming from some of the poorest areas in New York City have worked hard and whole heartily towards graduating high school and are now on the path to attending college with the support of Publicolor. In pursuit of growing in their academic career there is the struggle of closing the gap of funding between what is given in financial aid and actual school tuition. Publicolor has now started an amazing campaign with a goal of $150,000 running until August 2nd. in efforts of remedying a heavy financial load on their students shoulders.
Publicolor has been a beacon of light guiding and empowering at-risk students in preparation of pursuing higher learning. With design based programs and academic support, Publicolor has achieved an amazing feat with 100% of their students staying in school, 89% of them continuing to higher learning programs, and 92% with college persistence rates.
Publicolor is now asking the world to open their hearts and encouraging people to contribute towards these remarkable students closing the gap between them and their dreams. With 100 students facing a $5,000 tuition difference representing what is not being covered by financial aid, it’s time for us to step up and extend a helping hand. With contributions starting as low as $10 we can all make an impact in funding these deserving students future.
