Please join me in supporting the scholars in the Loretto Academy Challenge Program. Your contribution allows us to bridge the opportunity gap and continue providing an environment where our scholars feel supported and included. Our scholars are high achieving, passionate students who come from under-resourced families who, without our scholarship, would not be able to afford paying for Loretto’s tuition, much less college tuition. With your help, we can continue supporting our scholars and their families with their dreams.

As a first generation student who was raised by a terminally ill, single mother who always emphasized the importance of pursuing higher education, I understand the determination and dedication it takes to achieve dreams. With obstacles such as coming from a low income family and having to advocate for myself, I learned to take full advantage of any resource available. This program exposes our scholars to resources and experiences that otherwise would not be accessible to them, and encourages them to believe in themselves and their capacity to achieve anything they set their minds to.

Thank you for your donation and believing in our scholars and our program.
