It's hard for me to remember the exact date of when I was first introduced to this organization because I honestly didn't think they could possibly affect my life in anyway; but boy I was so wrong! It has been around six-seven years now that I have known of them and have been receiving their help. They make sure to engage with students in classrooms when introducing them with college information, take them on college campus tours, and even provide some of them with scholarships. I was lucky enough to be elected as one of their scholarship recipients and am now going on my fourth year with this benefit. I receive my scholarship at the beginning of each semester, always arriving just in time to help me with college books and transportation fees. They work hard on staying in your life past your high school experience-- I often find emails from them in my inbox and am quick to open them! The Fulfillment Fund is truly an organization that cares and strives to help those who need it by offering us with never-ending opportunities to gasp onto.

The Fulfillment Fund is the absolute BEST!!! I am so thankful for all of the support that they have given me throughout the years-- from helping with my personal statement to providing me with great internship opportunities. I know that I can always depend on the Fulfillment fund! With their help, I have made a successful transition to college and I have been able to pay for my books and other school expenses. I don't know where I would be without the Fulfillment Fund!

I am so thankful for this wonderful organization. This organization thrives on the principle of increasing the chance for a low income student to go to college as well as graduate and become successful through education. Without this organization I would probably not be in such a great position that I am currently in right now. The whole college process and transition from high school to college was made possible through the fulfillment fund. I was lucky enough to have amazing fulfillment fund college advisers because they truly care about you. Mrs. Elizabeth and Ms. Riesch were both spectacular and always encouraged me to find endless possibilities to numerous opportunities because they only want the best for their students and nothing less. I would be completely lost as to what was needed in order to go to college because before I did not know how to write a personal letter or a resume but fulfillment fund made sure to advise us as to what we should write and how to present them. Words cannot explain how thankful I am to be apart of such a phenomenal organization filled with spectacular people working to help out the community.

OMG i can not stress enough how thankful i am for the Fulfillment Fund. They have guided me all the way from high school until now, my last year in college. They introduced me to the university that i will graduate from in May. Thanks to the scholarship provided from the Fulfillment Fund I am able to attend college and pay for books and materials. They are very helpful when it comes to anything about college, and really try and help their students succeed. I will be forever grateful to them.

I was lucky to become a Fulfillment Fund Scholar.
I owe everything I have accomplished in my academic career to them.
Without the Fund I would never have been informed about the University I am currently enrolled, and expected to graduate in May from.
Without the financial support the Fund has awarded me I would never have been able to financially get through college.
I cannot stress how life-changing this organization has been to my life.
I am the 1st generation to go to college, and even though it was difficult to break the cycle in my family, the Fulfillment Fund made it possible.

The Fulfillment Fund was absolutely the most helpful program at my high school regarding preparation and knowledge gained from college. They help and prepare you through application process and how to prepare yourself for the personal statements. They offer countless events where you get first hand experience at college and what it's like to be a college student. It's an amazing program that continues to help students grow and have a higher success in getting into a university or institute.

I have been blessed to be a part of the fulfillment fund since I was in high school. I am currently a senior at the University of Wisconsin-Madison majoring in Psychology, Human Development and Family Studies, with a minor in studio art. Coming to college, although there were some obstacles, was a much easier transition thanks to the preparedness the fulfillment fund program provided me with. Also, on a much more personal level, my counselor in high school through the fulfillment fund made me feel confident enough in myself to persist through college and I could not be more grateful for her and for the program overall. The scholarship they have provided me with has given me the opportunity to not have to work as much and focus more on developing my identity as an adult and my academics. They are amazing people and deserve all the support possible.

I have been a participant in The Fulfillment Fund since my second year of high school. From the first day of my being part of their organization I have been welcomed with open arms. They have helped me find my way through life. Being that I am a first generation student, life after high school was all unfamiliar to me. With the help of The Fulfillment Fund I have been able to take everyday step by step. When times get hard it is pleasing to know that there is a shoulder who is very familiar with my struggles to help me. If it was not for The Fulfillment Fund being there for me I could not have achieved and gained as many opportunities as I have now.

The Fulfillment Fund is a resourceful and empowering nonprofit organization that I have been part of for six years. A review isn't enough to show how grateful I am for the amount of help they provide for students that live in low income communities. They constantly encourage students to pursue higher education and provide them with resources to help them achieve it. Not only do they provide support while students are in high school, but also try and keep in contact with them while they are in college through events or provide them with opportunities for internships. They definitely helped me throughout high school when it came to finding a school and the whole application process. They are kind and patient and you can tell this is something the workers are passionate about. I still receive their help due to the fulfillment fund scholarship which helps me with groceries and books while I am in school. I am glad I am still part of such a warm organization that genuinely cares about students from low income communities making it to college.
