As 2019 draws to a close, College Now is so grateful to all our philanthropic supports - from recent alumni seeking to pay it forward to hundreds of individual donors to longstanding foundation funders to local, regional, and national corporations. We could not begin to provide our best-in-class services to over 30,000 people in Northeast Ohio each year without each one of our supporters!
Medical Mutual of Ohio is one such amazing partner. Over the last 15 years, Medical Mutual has given College Now close to half a million dollars to ensure that the college and career guidance and financial aid counseling that we provide to high school students and their families, as well as to adults across Northeast Ohio who are seeking to enroll or re-enroll in postsecondary education, is always free.
In addition to its charitable support, Cleveland's oldest and largest health insurance company is a key partner with College Now's Mentoring Program. Today, approximately 40 Medical Mutual employees are paired individually with College Now scholarship recipients, helping students navigate obstacles on campus, develop social capital and networking skills, and serve as "graduation coaches."
Medical Mutual is justly recognized across our community for its tremendous involvement and engagement with so many nonprofit organizations, and College Now is humbled by and incredibly grateful for our longstanding relationship. Thank you, Medical Mutual!
