With a laser-like focus on supporting children and families, the mission-focused board and staff of CollegeReady is committed to positively impacting and creating opportunities for students of all backgrounds in Northeast Wisconsin.
Our donors believe that the gift of education is of vital importance, and must be made in order to develop strong future leaders and maintain a healthy community.
Our ability to utilize the talents of dedicated volunteers and a small, driven staff means more donor dollars go toward helping students, not big overhead costs.
“I have witnessed the financial power of a scholarship. The need to prepare kids for life after high school and assist with the financial burden are things everyone can understand.”
“I love making an impact and being a part of something bigger. I myself was a scholarship recipient in high school and I know the HUGE difference it makes for students. This is my way of helping give my time, and giving back to the community.”
“Looking for an easy way to make a lasting difference? I found a simple solution by volunteering to reach scholarship applications, serve on the Board and donating to CollegeReady. There’s lots of ways to get involved, and the long-term impact on the lives of local students is immeasurable!”
“The process of applying for scholarships is an educational one for students; it prepares them to be responsible for not only their grades, but also for their time commitments. They are learning the life lessons of being proactive about their future and engaged in the world around them.”
“I am happy to be able to volunteer my time, energy and experience for students who need scholarship money to help them get thru college.”
“CollegeReady is an amazing local nonprofit organization; their ultimate goal is to promote opportunity for post-secondary bound students.”
“I love to be a part of the opportunities that this organization provides. It keeps me involved with students even though I don’t have direct interaction with them.”
“As a university professor, I have seen firsthand the struggles of my students as they work extra hours and juggle their responsibilities to pay for college. I believe that scholarships offered by NEW Scholars and CollegeReady are instrumental in helping young people attend and graduate from college.”
“As a first generation college student I have a strong passion to assist others. This organization removes many of the road blocks.
My heartfelt thank you!”
