Thank You for Supporting Local Students
Thank you for your support this #GivingTuesday. We are 1/3rd of the way from our modest goal of $5k to help 5 more local kids achieve their dream of attending college. #GivingTuesday may have passed, but giving doesn't end here.  Here’s a link  in case you feel like you missed out on all the action. We will continue to collect donations through the end of the year. Your donations will have a lasting effect on the life of a Mountain View student. 

Thank you for your support, we couldn't do this without YOU!
