Progress to $300,000 (as of 1/5/24)

Thank you for investing in Scholar success!

Your generous support this giving season ensures that we can meet each Scholar where they are and offer them the tools and experiences they need to achieve their dreams.

Scholars consistently share that the greatest benefit they gain from our program is the sense of community—and donors like you help make that community possible. By contributing to our Scholars’ success, you send a clear message: I believe in you.

We are tremendously grateful for your commitment to helping local young people chart their own unique paths to purpose and prosperity. You are an invaluable partner on their journey!

As we close out the year, please accept heartfelt thanks from our entire New Futures team. Here’s to continuing our mission-critical work together in 2024—our 25th year of making a difference!


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.
