Today– December 1 — is #GivingTuesday. It’s a day for families, communities and organizations to come together and give back. Now in its fourth year, it is a daylong effort to help dedicated charities raise money online during the holiday season. It was started as a response to commercialization and consumerism in the post-Thanksgiving season (Black Friday and Cyber Monday).
Please consider making a gift to Eve’s Fund Scholarship Program today as part #GivingTuesday. Your contribution of any amount will make a real difference in the lives of Navajo students. You can give an underprivileged teen that needed boost to achieve his or her educational goals and a step toward a brighter future.
Here’s what some of the this year’s high school scholarship students said about the ability to continue their education and what that has meant to them:
“This scholarship has impacted me greatly, because without it I wouldn’t receive a quality education that has opened many doors to opportunities that helped me gain more knowledge in my culture and to succeed beyond classroom walls.” ~Nizoni, 11th grader
“Thank you, thank you, thank you for all the money you have invested toward the Eve’s Fund scholarship which has allowed me to continue my education here at Navajo Preparatory School!! This opportunity you have bestowed, has allowed me to learn what life is like outside of Chinle and continues to push me to strive for greatness. Without you, many of my dreams may not have been possible and I would not have been able to represent my family, community, and school in such a positive manner.” ~ Stacey, 11th grader
“Eve’s Fund has not only given me the experience and benefit of Navajo Prep’s education, but it also has given me something I don’t have to worry my parent with. I live with a single mother and the scholarship towards my student and testing fees has taken great financial stress off of her and relieved her of some of her burdens.” ~Elizabeth, 12 grader
“I am so grateful for the Eve’s Fund Scholarship because without it I would not have had the amazing opportunity to continue and pursue in my strong academic learning and stay cultural connected at my school. I am now a huge step closer to my goal and I am looking forward to my brighter future!” ~Jennifer, 12 grader
