How Do We Help Our Children?

We make college accessible by paying for tuition and fees for two years at any accredited community college or trade school in Michigan where a student is accepted. We also help support them when applying for school and throughout the entire college experience to ensure success.

How Do We Help Our Community?

  • The success of our students in the community helps draw companies and families to the greater Benton Harbor area
  • Boosts the local economy with increased spending on things such as housing and shopping
  • Increases school enrollment, graduation and retention rates, while reducing remediation costs
  • Raises property values and tax revenues to deliver more and better public services
