About Campaign

Thousands of nonconventional students in your city are low-income, first-generation, and doing several 'gigs' to make ends meet. Many of them are fast slipping below poverty level due to job losses and being furloughed. We can stem this by helping them gain certification in courses that help them become re-employable! Virtual Gala 2022 aims to provide vocational scholarships to such ambitious individuals who dare to dream of a career that will change their, and their families' futures.

For every dollar you invest in a student, you are adding $5 in future earning potential for them.

The total benefit to society and taxpayers for every student that graduates is about $22!

Don't pass up this wonderful investment opportunity!

Join us and Donate Now, or even better, start your own fundraiser and get your friends and family involved!
