Review for EALgreen, Wheaton, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

EALgreen was founded to provide need based scholarships to deserving students. The focus is on students who have exhausted all other forms of aid and still lack the funds needed to complete their degree.

EAL's concept for generating scholarships is unique. EAL takes excess inventory from corporations and barters this to schools in return for scholarships for needy students . This is a "win-win" for everyone in that corporations dispose of unneeded inventory; schools get usable items at a significantly discounted cost (which is then converted to scholarships); students get needed scholarship support; and donated materials are, as a result, recycled and not disposed of in landfills. It is truly a circular approach to sustainably.

EAL has generated over $25 million in scholarships and has assisted over 18000 students in its 37 years of existence.

Review for EALgreen, Wheaton, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Both as the co-founder and board member of this outstanding organization , I have witnessed its growth over the past 35 years as we have helped over 15,000 students complete their goal of attaining a college education. Many of these were the first in their families. EALgreen has given them a head start on advancing up the ladder of opportunity. Hopefully, many will give back the gift of education to others as they progress in their careers ... just as EALgreen has done for them.
