$50: An ESL book for a student
Most Upward Scholars student's journeys begin with ESL classes. With a limited income in our expensive housing market, the cost a textbook can be enough to keep students from taking these classes. Your donation will help a hardworking student take their first step towards reaching their educational and professional goals!
$250: Equip a student with a laptop
A laptop computer is a life-changing gift for our students; many of whom have to write all of their papers and homework at a local library, which can be difficult to coordinate against a full work schedule. A personal computer allows students to complete their coursework when they have time after work and on weekends.
