What it's for:
Your donations go directly towards supporting the young innovators in underserved communities who can help us find solutions to the current global challenges we all face.
This year, more than ever, we see how important access to quality education is. We've been challenged with a global health pandemic and we need educated young people to help find solutions. The i.am Angel foundation raises funding each year to aid them in their education towards that goal.
The i.am Angel Foundation fund was founded by will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas. The foundation raises funding for education programs focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Math (i.am STEAM) and college preparation programs in collaboration with Laurene Powell Jobs (i.am College Track). We also fund i.am Scholarship, which has awarded over $926,000 in scholarships since 2009 so students can achieve their goals of obtaining a college degree if they cannot afford to go.
We started with 53 students in our programs 9 years ago and now have over 600 young people that we support. All of our students are on their way to college and 95% of them will be the first in their families to go. We are creating a college-going culture where there was none before and this is literally transforming lives.
We want students from underserved areas to think big, and to dream big. Your donations will help further that goal, as well as inspire the students in the communities that we work with to become tomorrow's innovators. We would be honored to have you join us in this movement!
