Help our scholars reach $10,000 by the time they graduate!

When we first started in 2013, each scholar was able to earn scholarships just a few hundred dollars each year. Because of donors like you, we've grown! Now, we give our Monster Scholars opportunity to earn about $2000 each year! Multiply that by the 6.5 years each scholar spends in our program, now scholars can grow their scholarships to be about $10,000 by the time they graduate! 

Because we are a mostly volunteer-run organization, 100% of your donations are contributed to our scholars' college savings accounts and programming in underserved urban Chicago communities. Our wonderful board's giving covers all administrative expenses! Isn't that awesome?!

*Monster Education Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. EIN # 83-1880124. Every donation has an impact, and we are grateful for your help.
