College is expensive. And we aren’t just talking about tuition. Books, course fees, dorm materials, and school supplies add up quickly and often are not covered by scholarships and financial aid. Over 90% of OneGoal Fellows are the first in their family to attend college and many of them must create a plan for funding every dollar of their college expenses on their own. During our summer Supplies Drive, you can give the gift of Amazon eGift Cards to college-bound Fellows to help ensure they obtain the necessary college supplies they need while keeping their expenses in check, increasing the likelihood they will persist as college freshmen. Through our summer Supplies Drive, OneGoal aims to distribute 100 $25 Amazon eGift Cards to our excited and brilliant college-bound Fellows. Your gesture of encouragement will help them be better prepared for their first day of college.
July 1 – August 31
Benefiting Chicago college-bound Fellows
GOAL: $2,500 in Amazon eGift Cards
Why Amazon eGift Cards?
A $25 Amazon eGift card is the most versatile way to impact students. Fellows can use them to purchase textbooks or for a variety of unexpected supply needs. Furthermore, the amount of $25 allows us to reach the maximum number of students.
Can I donate more than $25?
Yes, and thank you for your generosity. To donate more than $25, please purchase multiple gift cards in increments of $25. This will allow us to distribute resources to the most Fellows possible.
Can I mail a physical gift card?
If you prefer to purchase a traditional gift card, you may mail it to OneGoal-Chicago, Attn: Brynne Mancuso, 180 N. Wabash, Suite 800, Chicago, IL, 60601 with a note that says “For Supplies Drive”. Please purchase gift cards in the amount of $25.
I don’t live in Chicago. Can I still participate?
Absolutely! One of the great benefits of Amazon eGift Cards is that they can be purchased from anywhere. Please follow the steps listed above to participate in OneGoal’s Supplies Drive.
