Support Economically Disadvantaged Youth

The Albany Public Schools Foundation invites you to support local public school students, their teachers as well as graduating seniors.  The Student Assistance Fund helps at-risk and low income students achieve the college dream and provides needed essentials and enrichment opportunities for K-12 students.

The Student Assistance Fund Changes Lives

Recently, three students, Adriana, Mackenzie and Hailey were the first in the history of Albany Options School (our alternative high school) to be accepted into a four year university.  They overcame extreme challenges.  Two were unaccompanied homeless minors, one of which had been living in the U.S. without parents since age twelve.  Donors like you stepped up and provided bedding, clothing, dorm room supplies, a bicycle and three laptops for these amazing students.  Without this support, the obstacles to success for these students were great.  Today, these girls are safe, studious, self-sufficient college freshman.

Your support makes stories like this possible.  Today, we are announcing the launch of a new student assistance fund.  This fund is designed to help low income and high risk students K-12 and beyond. Our goal for this campaign is to raise $10,000 by December 31st.

Would you be willing to make a special year-end donation of $50, $100 or whatever you can afford to help us meet our goal and provide enrichment opportunities, essential needs and scholarships to students in our schools?  Please fill out the enclosed form and send it in today.
