Your tax-deductible donation to Upward Scholars makes it possible for hard-working, immigrant adult students to pursue the degree or vocational training necessary to improve their lives, uplift their families, and move our entire community forward. We accept donations via VenMo, credit card, check, and stock as well as car donations. Our tax ID number is 45-4128140.
