“The Power of Education”



Rise Up for 5!

Rise Up for 5 webNow is the time to make an impact for girls in Rochester.  From the first day at YWCP, our students know there's something special about an education focused on college preparation.

YWCP is now in its 5th academic year.  Our first class will graduate in 2018.  Those students are Juniors now.  They are visiting college campuses, meeting with admissions counselors, and preparing to take the SAT.  This is not the time to slow down.  It's time to RISE UP and show our students that we are with them on their journey to college.  We are supporting them every step of the way!

Over the next 5 weeks, the YWCP Foundation is asking each of our friends and supporters to RISE UP and raise $25,000 to support these students.  EVERY GIFT MATTERS.

  • $50 provides a blazer for a rising Senior that has completed her college application checkpoints - a symbol of her role as a leader and trailblazer.
  • $100 provides a graphing calculator for a student to use for the SAT.
  • $250 gives a student the opportunity to join a tour of Historically Black Colleges and Universities in Virginia.
  • $500 provides transportation for an entire class to visit a college campus within New York State.
  • $1,000 provides access for 250 students to Naviance, a college and career planning program used by most suburban high schools.

No matter the size of your gift, it will make a huge impact on our students.

It is up to us to make sure these opportunities are available to all girls.  Will you RISE UP today?
