According to The Postsecondary National Policy Institute, while black students have made enrollment gains in higher education over the past two decades, there has been less progress in closing the degree attainment gap. Black students are also more likely to take out federal loans. As of Fall 2019, black students made up 2.1 million of the undergraduate student population, translating to 12.7%. These stats are increasing, but not at an adequate rate, and we want to change this.
The Smith Legacy Stronger Together Foundation focuses on providing students with an equal opportunity to prosper in their academics and amongst other students in their communities. They do this by offering scholarships, working towards being a blessing to students, and inspiring a movement of selfless acts within the black and brown community.
By supporting The Smith Legacy Stronger Together Foundation, we will help enhance the lives of underrepresented and marginalized students through scholarships for first-year college students of both black and brown minorities. And so can you!
We have decided to support them by advocating and directing monetary rewards to their cause. When you recommend someone to us that receives a non-obligation quote, we offer to donate $10 on your behalf! Ready to become a community hero?!
