How will you help someone trying to change their life?
WAYS WE KEEP OUR DONORS INFORMED
At least 95% of total donations will go directly as scholarships to students
At Degrees for our Youth, our commitment is to minimize admin fees and direct funding towards scholarships. However, some expenses are unavoidable – these include website upkeep, filing taxes, incorporation etc. Our promise to you is that we will never let these expenses be more than 5% of the total funds we have collected and to keep our donors informed on the details of these expenses.
Accountability through transparency
Every school we partner with and scholarships given is available to the public, giving donors the visibility to track funds collected and scholarships given.
Direct donor engagement
At Degrees for our Youth, you are not just a donor – you are our partner. Work with us to set up a Degrees for our Youth award in a school of your choice and we will help you fundraise.
Ability to give direct feedback (Coming Soon!)
You have the ability to tell us how to improve our giving! Simply add a comment in our donor page and at the end of the quarter we use AI to detect common themes and address them.
Live dashboard on total $ donated (Coming Soon!)
You have live visibility into total funds we have raised and how many scholarships that will fund.
