Support Our Cause

Any amount you donate will help us towards our goal of providing free, online, and on-demand tutoring and college counseling. Because all of our staff members are unpaid volunteers, our monthly costs are very low. However, in order to cover our existing expenses and continue to expand our programs, we will need your generous support.


How will donations be used?

  • Administrative costs to cover email accounts for key staff members and background checks for volunteers.
  • Marketing materials to advertise our free services to students and recruit volunteers.
  • Technology costs that includes domain costs, server costs, and voice chat per minute between students and volunteers.
  • Expanding our services to cover the legal costs for 501c3 application, training materials for volunteers, practice materials for students, small grants for students to visit college campuses, hiring an accountant, and other costs.
