In the midst of the holiday season, we share this message from Alyssa Petrella, a Ft. Hayes graduate who is the Development and Public Relations Director of I Know I Can:
As we enter this holiday season and the start of a new year, we ask all CEA members to consider I Know I Can in charitable giving this year. Our mission is to inspire, enable and support CCS students in pursuing and completing a college degree. Each year, we host dozens of events to guide families through the college application and funding process. I Know I Can is making great strides in ensuring post-secondary success for CCS students. With your help, we have guided CCS graduates to earn more than 22,000 grants valued at nearly $23 million and leverage more than $300 million in additional financial aid. We also have shown middle school families how they can start planning now to afford college tuition.
But each year there is a new group of students looking forward to a college education and not sure how to get there. We know that you are a major factor in their lives. I Know I Can is an important way you can make sure your influence and caring follow them after graduation.
