Giving Tuesday

Local students need your help!

November 29, 2022 is
GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

On November 29—or any day—you can encourage kids to pursue their dreams by donating to CollegeReady.

A college education opens doors and provides opportunities, but many local students lack the means and the tools to access it.

Why donate to CollegeReady?

CollegeReady provides financial need-based scholarships and college readiness programming to deserving students right here in Northeast Wisconsin.

We award over $450,000 in scholarships to local college-bound students every year, and through our NEW Scholars college readiness program, annually we help about 200 middle and high school students get to college.

We are a local organization, funded by local friends and donors, helping local students.

Why is your gift so important for local students?

The U.S. Department of Education states that only one in 10 students from the lowest income families earn a bachelor’s degree, compared to 8 in 10 students from higher-income families.

In the Green Bay schools we serve, almost two-thirds of the student population falls into the ‘lowest income’ category, which indicates there is a significant need to help local students access higher education.
