Urgent Need: Back to School During Covid (Every Dollar Matched!)

The first day of school is right around the corner, and this year ‘Back to School’ means something entirely different. It means new challenges, adjustments, and uncertainties for every single student in Southern California and around the world.

Luckily, our incredible Local Heroes in Southern California told us exactly what the children and young adults in their communities need to make this year of virtual learning a success – but we have to act NOW to make sure they’re ready for the start of the school year!

And the first $4,400 of your donations will be matched – dollar for dollar – thanks to the generosity of long-time GO supporter Anna Rawson! Anna cares deeply about education for at-risk youth, and she will match your contribution today up to $4,400!

What you can make possible for students in Southern California:

$500 can purchase 1 of the 9 laptops needed for Lincoln Heights Tutorial Program (LHTP) to keep their tutors connected and working with students as they navigate virtual learning this school year.

$250 can supply 5 of the 50 foster youth with Stepping Forward LA who are entering their first year of college with simple tools to help them stay organized and navigate their workload. Tools like portable filing cabinets, phone chargers & laptop lap desks, privacy sliders for their computers, etc.

$100 can supply 10 primary school students from from the teen mom households of Generation Her with basic school supplies like notebooks, pens, papers, crayons, scissors, etc. Even though classes are online, they still need supplies to complete their assignments at home.

Help us make sure that every young student in our home city of Los Angeles has a fighting chance this year and does not fall behind in their studies.

By giving these needed supplies to these young students, you are also giving them the gift of encouragement – you are showing them that they are deserving and that they matter.

Thank you for helping us GO!
