Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We would like to help lessen the financial debt problem that kids face when going to college. We would like to be the catalyst that can help lessen the financial burden upfront so that hopefully students can graduate college debt-free.

ESUME Scholarships

We are wanting to provide scholarships to those in the community who are financially unable to pay tuition for college. Our organization is reachable enough to reach out to those in local schools to give them the opportunities that they otherwise would not get due to heavy competition.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We award scholarships yearly and hope the same students as well as new students come back each year and apply to receive a scholarship.

Currently, we use proceeds from our tax business as well as our clients who love to donate each year. This year we are apart of the Combined Federal Campaign and we hope to generate more funds so we can give more and larger scholarships. Due to Covid, we had to postpone our fundraising event but we hope to be able to have it in June 2020.

We are good at generating and generalizing ideas with impact with our board members on how we can improve our process to generate funds for the scholarships. We have also been managing costs and our budget since our audit and thinking of other ways to generate funds using less resources.

We have accomplished being able to give out more money each year since 2017 when we awarded our first scholarship. Next, we plan on doubling the amount for 2021 or even triple if the funds are available.

Data
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
