Help Us Invest In Our Future

Investing in the Meritus Program means transforming lives for marginalized youth in our community by providing access to and success through college and beyond.

1. Sponsor a Scholar

Each Scholar in the Meritus program receives a four-year scholarship plus individualized coaching, mentorship and career awareness. To invest in a Scholar, donors contribute between $500 and $4,000 annually for four years. Your support benefits an individual student who will update you each semester on their progress towards graduation. Thank you for considering one of the participation levels noted on our downloadable Pledge Form.

2. General Support

One-time gifts from individuals, foundations, and corporations help us ensure that the individual needs of our students are met. With your help, Meritus will provide ongoing end-to-end support services which make a crucial difference to our Scholars, contributing to their success in college and post-graduation.
