We are a grassroots effort, and therefore rely on the generous contributions of supporters like you! Below we identified three areas of need.
1. Emergency Fund
We are contacting families on an on-going basis to determine need. Undocumented individuals were left out of the stimulus package, and many work in industries without benefits or protections. We will distribute emergency funds to help with rent, groceries, healthcare, and utilities.
2. Program Costs
For the summer program alone we need to raise the following amount:
$10,000 for room and board
$1,000 for t-shirts and activity materials: books, art supplies, info packets
$3000 for counselor stipends
3. Scholarship Fund
Many families are depleting savings at this time. The need is greater than ever to support our graduates' college pursuits.
Adelante Student Voices is an affiliate program of Rural & Migrant Ministry, which currently acts as our fiscal sponsor. All donations are tax-deductible. Contact us if you would like a letter for tax purposes.
You can also send a donation by check to us by mail: PO Box 3023, Poughkeepsie, NY 12603.
Thank you for your support, and please reach out if you have any questions.
