Donations are crucial to ensuring SEA students succeed and reach their goals! Your gift will ensure that young people throughout King County will benefit from the extraordinary experience of college. However, students enrolled in our program are not the only ones who benefit from our work:

• Many students are also parents; by helping them succeed, you also help them provide for their families and give them the opportunity to raise college-bound children.

• Colleges benefit as youth from disenfranchised communities become part of their learning population, bringing greater diversity to campus. The addition of new voices and new perspectives helps these institutions enhance the academic and social experience for all involved.

• Local businesses and employers benefit as low-income and marginalized youth become highly educated workers who enter the labor force.

• Communities benefit when people escape intergenerational poverty. Education has been proven to reduce rates of crime, incarceration, and unwanted pregnancy. Education is an effective and efficient way to prevent cycles of poverty and crime in the next generation.

Your donation will make a significant impact on the daily lives of our students. Your generous support helps us continue to serve the youth in our community and give them a better chance at educational success. Your gift could provide:

$1000 – tuition for one quarter

$400 – books and school supplies

$100 – a student bus pass for one quarter

$50 – college application fee

$20 – one GED study guide
