Some people just want to see you succeed. Case in point, an anonymous donor has sown a $15,000 seed into Brave Enough To Fail’s online fundraiser, to help the nonprofit grow to the next level. The person does not want their name released or any form of personal recognition. They just want to help Brave Enough To Fail inspire more students to succeed. They are also hoping that their action will inspire others to give as well.
A collaboration of people working together to help our students in these trying times.
New Milford based, Brave Enough To Fail, is a student-focused nonprofit that provides free motivational programs, scholarships, and SEL-based courses to middle and high school students nationwide.
Wayne Winsley, founder and CEO commented,
“Our mission is closing the achievement gap for low-income students and cultivating a new generation of leaders, creators, & achievers. Between the COVID-19 closures and the social unrest in our nation, students in lower-income and minority schools need all the encouragement they can get!”
Donations go directly toward funding scholarships, the Boss Academy elective or after school course, and other motivational programs.
Brave Enough To Fail, lets students know that their dreams matter and their education is key to making those dreams come true.
Over the past five years Brave Enough To Fail has reached over 15,000 students and awarded $50,000 in scholarships to students attending college or trade school. Brave Enough To Fail scholars have a 90% college graduation rate!
The “Boss of your dream” presentation motivates and inspires students with the courage to pursue their dreams.
BETF’s Boss Academy is a 12 week SEL-based course, available as an elective or after-school program, that equips students with the tools needed to achieve their dreams.
The up to $5,000 in scholarships at each school served provides financial aid to make those dreams happen.
