"We all deserve the opportunity to achieve our dreams and to have someone who believes in us."
- Halek, New Futures Alumna
dreams that lead to
At New Futures, we believe in the powerful dreams of our Scholars.
We invest in their bright futures through a deliberate combination of scholarships, academic and career advising, opportunities to build networks and skills, and a lot of heart – all through the lens of community college as a launching point to rewarding and in-demand careers.
While we cannot gather this year for our annual New Futures Bright Futures Benefit, we remain committed to building our coalition and raising the funds our Scholars need to pursue their bright futures and powerful dreams. Join us instead for Power On, the Campaign for New Futures, a wholly new way of standing with our community.
Power On is not a moment,
it’s a movement.
Be with New Futures throughout the month of September for our first-ever interactive storytelling and fundraising campaign.
We will build our coalition, reach new goals, and share the mic with our Scholars as they raise their voices as powerful agents of change and impact in our uncertain, yet hopeful times.
Party with Purpose
Join us on Wednesday, September 30th at 6:30pm for our Party with Purpose: a virtual celebration of the Power On campaign and of the bright futures we are forging together.
Invite a friend!
Virtual, yes. Party for one? Not necessarily!
Invite your friends over for a socially distanced watch party on September 30, or encourage them to tune in from home, as well!
Grab your Power On Party Pack!
Support the Power On campaign by September 16 and we will deliver or mail the goodies you need to celebrate with us on September 30. From Scholars’ recipes to the New Futures Family Spotify playlist, we’ll make sure your Party with Purpose is safe and fun!
Sharing the Mic
Hear from us, the Scholar and Alumni community, on what fuels and propels us in our pursuit of our bright futures. Watch your inbox for video essays and personal statements.
“What keeps me going is my desire to break a chain of poverty.”
“I’m working hard to be the best version of myself to one day inspire others to be the best version of themselves.”
Hear from our Scholars and Alumni on Instagram every Wednesday in September on how they are powering on with purpose.
My Purpose, My Power
“My Advisor’s advice is really true and genuine, like it’s for me personally, not advice she gives to just anyone. She really listens to my situation and gives me the resources to match the issue I’m going through.”
-Kenya, New Futures Scholar, on her Advisor, Ms. Silvana
