A New Year of Thanks



whole group wave IMG_3178 - croppedWe’d like to start the new year off by thanking our recent major funders, who help so much to make Crusaders’ successes possible. Textron Charitable Trust awarded us a $15,000 matching grant for Rhode island GEAR UP, which provides Advisory services and programming to over 3,700 students in grades 6-12 each year. Nellie Mae Education Foundation, the largest philanthropic organization in New England to focus on improving education, gave us a $39,239 grant to fund ReadAbout, an engaging program that helps Crusaders in grades 6 and 7 improve their reading skills. We are very grateful to Textron and Nellie Mae for their continuing support.

Two new major funders recently made generous gifts to support operating expenses at The College Crusade. We received $10,000 from the Bhikhaji Maneckji Fund at the Rhode Island Foundation, and we received $5,000 from the Fascitelli Family Foundation. We thank you for your gifts, and welcome you to our College Crusade family!
