7ReasonstoGive

Dear all,
 
We have launched our new fundraising website that highlights 7 reasons to give in this season of giving. We need your support and advocacy in this matter and request you all to forward the email message below to as many contacts of yours as possible. Please forward it to your parents as well. One of the Gateway Science Academy’s parents already contacted us in this regard and offered her help. Hopefully, there will be more.
 
Your attention and your time in this matter is greatly appreciated.
 

As part of our mission, Concept Schools provides historically underserved students and communities access to a high-quality STEM-focused and college-preparatory education.  Of our 13,500 students, 85% are African American, Hispanic or Latino, and it brings me great joy to share that considering roughly 83% of our students qualify as low-income, nearly 100% of our students are accepted into college each year.   The Class of 2019 earned more than $50.4 million in merit-based scholarships.

These successes come as a result of our dedicated and engaging staff members, the hard work of our students, and with the support of our parents and community leaders who have chosen Concept Schools wisely.

As a tax-exempt, non-profit organization, Concept Schools has created a variety of educational programs and events designed to further enrich the unique learning opportunities for our students.  We need your financial support to continue to help sustain these opportunities. 

Today, Concept Schools offers you 7 Reasons to Give.  These 7 reasons extend beyond the classroom and provide opportunities for students to demonstrate their knowledge and abilities, celebrate their cultural heritage, develop their advocacy skills, and support them to and through college.

By supporting our 7 Reasons to Give campaign, you have the power to change the trajectory of a student’s life. 

Education is the greatest gift, help us deliver it.

Thank you, and enjoy a safe and happy holiday season,

Sedat Duman
President & CEO
Concept Schools
