Dear iBELIEVE friends and family,
For nearly one decade, The iBELIEVE Foundation has pursued a mission of providing accessible opportunities for young leaders to engage in youth development programs across the region. These programs have always been provided at no expense to participating students thanks to the generosity of community corporations, foundations and individuals that recognize the value of such opportunities. This year, with the release of our program calendar for Summer Leadership Workshops, we encourage you to share your voice far and wide. Due to a lack of planned funding, we are currently not capable of achieving our traditional scope of programs for the 2020 season. Programs in West Virginia have been scaled back to a single week, and programs in Kentucky are currently not scheduled. We urge you to join our efforts to share the importance of youth leadership development and the impact that would be forfeited for so many students across Appalachia. Help us in our efforts to provide Opportunity For All and raise $35,000 to save our workshops in Kentucky and West Virginia. It is our hope that with your help we can continue our mission to provide as many student opportunities as possible in 2020.
