Fund a Scholar

The Prep for Prep Scholar Program demonstrates to our donors the tangible effects of their generosity on individual students. Prep students are matched with donors who have pledged their support with a one-time gift that provides them with a wide range of services and opportunities. The sponsorship gift represents the cost of a student’s journey through the Prep for Prep program.  Donors can pledge support at three levels:

• $50,000 – Prep for Prep University Scholar (Sponsorship lasts for 10 years.)
• $35,000 – Prep for Prep Scholar (Sponsorship lasts for 6 years.)
• $15,000 – Prep for Prep Preparatory Component Scholar (Sponsorship lasts for 2 years.)
