NEW in 2022: Announcing the Swift Fund
Named in honor of our founding Executive Director, Earlyse Swift, the Swift Fund is expressly for the purpose of meeting emergency student and family needs and/or emergent community needs swiftly. EVERY week clients come to us seeking help with pressing bills, housing costs to prevent eviction or get rehoused rapidly, & in need of food or other basic necessities. We work hard with our partners to leverage all available resources, with great success, but sometimes, we still can't meet the needs.
Your donation to the Swift Fund today will make a huge difference in meeting important client needs quickly, plus it is a great way to thank Earlyse for founding TOGETHER! in 1989! Thank you, Earlyse, and thank you, donors and partners for the difference you make! Give today by mail (list Swift Fund in the memo line of your check) or via this link or the Donate Now button above.
During the launch of the fund, all donations in the amount of $300 or greater will be included in a listing of Founding Members for a limited time. Thank you for investing in the resilience of students and families today to eliminate barriers to their success!
|Thank You Founding Members:
Darcy Huffman; Jerrod Keller; Julie Boyer; Katherine Flynn; Linda Villegas Bremer; Mary Segawa; Mary Williams; Meghan Sullivan; & Terra Sullivan.
