What Your Donation Is Used For
Tutoring intervention makes all the difference, helping students in school, work, and life – creating a ripple effect that lasts for generations. You can help close academic and opportunity gaps for the disadvantaged, so that all students can take charge of the future they want for themselves, their families, and their communities.
It costs approximately $1,000 for a student to receive a full term of education support with an experienced E.R.E. tutor of their choice. 100% of your donation supports student learning in core subjects (i.e. math, language arts, and reading), test prep (i.e. high school and college entrance exams), and soft skills (i.e. metacognition, executive functions, and interpersonal skills). Learn more about E.R.E.’s tutoring program and the impact it has had on our students.
All donations go to our general fund, which supports our tutoring program directly by covering tutoring costs and indirectly by covering operational and fundraising costs. These contributions are instrumental in sustaining and enhancing our programs.
