Welcome to my fundraising page for Crossroads!

Dear Friends,

Due to the COVID pandemic we have struggled to raise money through our usual fundraising events. As a member of the Crossroads community, I have volunteered to help us raise enough money for us to support our programs through the Spring of 2021. My personal goal is $750. Every contribution of any size will help.

Feel free to navigate through the page to learn more about our programs and use the button on the right to make a donations.

Thank you for your support!

OUR MISSION

At Crossroads Scholarship Fund our mission is to help young students break the generational cycle of poverty through scholarship and advocacy.  Our scholars are first-generation college attendees determined to overcome the multiple odds associated with underprivileged backgrounds.

In order to ensure our students’ success, we take a unique, holistic approach. We provide them with financial support and we address their need for on-going advocacy and guidance.

building brighter futures through:

The Crossroads Scholars program is unique. It was created with every first-generation student in mind. We focus on the student majority and not just those that graduate in the top 20% of their class and we take into consideration that not every student will attend a conventional five year university program. Many of our scholars choose a vocational or technical career. Upon program enrollment, our scholars receive a $1,000 annual scholarship, a one-on-one mentor and they are coached on the importance of stewardship. They receive our support until they graduate with a degree or vocational certificate and they enter the workforce.

                                - $1,000 annual scholarship

                                - Year-round mentorship to make sure they stay on track until they graduate 

                                 - Stewardship programming to foster resource accountability and giving back to the community
