Thank you to all the supporters and friends who made the 4th Annual CollegeBound Initiative Celebration a success!

On May 28, more than 400 guests joined us in making the dream of college a reality. We applauded the more than 11,500 low-income students served this year by CollegeBound Initiative (CBI).  

The 2014 CBI Celebration honored our students and their achievements. We are grateful to this year’s honorees - Margie and Ken Blanchard, Victor Cruz, and Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan - for showing our students that hard work and perseverance lead to tremendous opportunity, and for inspiring us all to make a difference in our communities.

As we look ahead to the 2014-2015 school year, your ongoing support will help to make the dream of college a reality for even more students! Here’s how you can make this possible:
