THE STORY:

Why I am fundraising for the Daniel Trust Foundation: 

Dear friends: As you know, I have been teaching at Bassick High School in Bridgeport, Connecticut for the past 14 years. Through all these years, I have had the privilege of teaching many talented and wonderful students. My dream is to see all my students succeed following their high school graduation, however that is not always the case. Over the years, I have witnessed students who got accepted into college, but ended up not going or dropped out after their first semester because they didn't have the support and resources they needed to succeed on a college campus. A former student, Daniel Trust, founded the Daniel Trust Foundation to help fix this challenge and I would love for you to join me and Shaun as we host "Cheese, Wine and You for a Good Cause" at our home in support of the inspiring work the Daniel Trust Foundation is doing in the community. 

The Daniel Trust Foundation is a nonprofit organization that invests in and supports students from low-income communities with their educational and career needs and honors teachers who are making a difference in the lives of their students and communities in which they teach. The foundation accomplishes it's mission through 3 targeted programs towards the needs of the community. These programs are: (1) a mentoring program for high school juniors and seniors, (2) a college scholarship program for graduates of the mentoring program and (3) a teacher recognition program. Since 2014, the Daniel Trust Foundation has invested in and supported 42 students and 23 teachers. The foundation has awarded $25,000 to students and $8,000 to teachers. In 2017, the amount awarded to students will increase to $46,000 and $11,000 to teachers. To learn more about the Daniel Trust Foundation, please visit www.DanielTrustFoundation.org. 

I look forward to seeing you at "Cheese, Wine and You for a Good Cause" on February 24th. Daniel Trust and his team will be here to tell us more about the impact their work is having in the lives of young people and educators. We thank you in advance for your generous contribution. Please know that donations made to the Daniel Trust Foundation are tax-deductible. Finally, I am excited to announce that Shaun and I will match every donation made on this fundraising page. Please give generously.
