Dear Friends, Colleagues and Supporters:
#GIVINGTUESDAYNOW | A GLOBAL DAY OF GIVING AND UNITY
MAY 5, 2020
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” — Nelson Mandela
#GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of generosity and unity, a day to come together and give back in response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19, no matter who or where we are.
At a time when we are all experiencing the pandemic, generosity is what brings people of all races, faiths, and political views together across the globe. Generosity gives everyone the power to make a positive change in the lives of others and is a fundamental value anyone can act on.
As you are aware, the mission of Pathways to College is providing our students information, guidance and support to be the best high school students, college applicants and college students they can be. Our commitment to Pathways to College students is realized, in part, by a historic measure of success: 100% of our graduating seniors have won college acceptance, including the class of 2020!
In response to closed school buildings in Newark, Pathways staff, teachers and consultants are planning and executing continuous interaction and program delivery with all Pathways students at our three Newark high schools, until June 30, 2020. We are actively reviewing and adjusting program components and materials to meet present education challenges, engaging students in new ways, and driving home two important messages: college is still in their futures; and rigorous, focused preparation remains both possible and critical to their academic and personal success. We need your help to ensure that our children continue to excel throughout this crisis.In celebration of #GIVINGTUESDAYNOW, a Pathways to College partner has committed to matching all donations, dollar-for-dollar, thereby doubling contributions. We encourage your support of our mission by asking that you donate to the Pathways to College Matching Gift campaign today.Thank you in advance for your consideration.
