I don't have any kids or haven't benefited from Project Grad, but I know a couple staff member and I know how hard they work to serve the kids. Graduations, summer programs, after hours programs. I know they are making a difference for the youth of our city. Thanks

As an Account Executive at Atlanta Business Chronicle that works with nonprofits to build awareness to the community about their mission statements, goals, and needs, I know the importance of making sure the corporate community is kept informed and engaged. Project GRAD Atlanta does a great and consistent job informing Atlanta about their success and the increasing amount of scholarships that are awarded. With their commitment to celebrating the graduates and thanking the supporters, they continue to grow and remain top of mind for support consideration. Great job to Project GRAD Atlanta!!

As an Account Executive at Atlanta Business Chronicle, I work with a lot of nonprofit accounts. It is great working with Project GRAD Atlanta as they share their mission, community impact, and success of their Brumley-GRAD Scholarships to over 1,400 graduates to further the GREAT work that they do by raising awareness to corporate Atlanta & those who can help with their efforts! Improving Education opportunities is incredibly important! Project GRAD Atlanta contributes to impacting Atlanta's college enrollment and graduation rates! Fantastic!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Continuing to see them celebrate & promote their success in providing scholarships every year with the support of the Atlanta Community and Corporations!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

(nothing really, but...continue to ensure marketing budget to keep Atlanta informed and keep support opportunities top of mind!)

I'm so impressed with Project Grad! When I first heard about what they do I couldn't believe there was an organization out there that helps young people have a better future beyond high school. I've spoken to first generation college students who have said they would have never thought they could go to college until they were exposed to Project Grad. Please keep up the wonderful work you're doing!
