Starting this GivingTuesday, invest in Scholar Success!

We know that when young people have equitable opportunities and access to resources, they are more likely to succeed in their academic and career pursuits. That’s why we make every effort to understand individual Scholars’ wants and needs, accommodating the full complexity of their lives. We don’t impose a singular narrative of success on our Scholars; instead, we ask, “What’s your dream and how can we help?”

Our Scholars tell us that one of the most significant benefits they receive from participating in our program is a sense of community and partnership. Your support helps us create communities that propel Scholars to their vision of success.

Our goal is to raise $300,000 by December 31st and we invite you to be part of their success by donating to our Scholar Success Campaign today!


It's simple. Our program works. Period.

With an 86% success rate (graduation and persistence) among Scholars selected in the last five years, we're moving the needle on increasing equity and access for young people in the DC area. 

As nationwide community college enrollment and persistence rates decline, New Futures Scholars and alumni defy trends, earning their degrees and launching meaningful, financially rewarding careers.
