WELCOME TO THE GAMBLE INSTITUTE’S 2014 HOLIDAY CHALLENGE!

It’s been three years since TGI held a Holiday Challenge and we are thrilled to be returning once again to our signature fundraising event.  TGI and its Street Scholar Peer Mentoring Program are stronger than ever thanks to funding from Alameda County Innovations in Reentry and Merritt College. Still, to continue our meaningful and effective support of adults with incarceration and addiction histories, WE NEED YOU!  The holiday season is a perfect time to support Street Scholars and invest in women and men who are dedicating themselves to transforming their lives and our communities through higher education.

What is TGI’s Holiday Challenge? To raise $12,000 by December 31, 2014.

Each week during the holiday season, we will send you an e-news letter featuring one of our fabulous scholars.  Their success stories will inspire you to think differently about formerly incarcerated folks and TO GIVE to TGI! All contributions will support the Street Scholars Peer Mentoring Program.

How much should you give? No amount is too small (or too big!) and every dollar helps. Here are some ways your contribution will support Street Scholars.

$1000 supports one scholar in the Street Scholars program for one academic year (two semesters).
$500 supports one scholar in the Street Scholars program for one semester.
$250 supports one scholar in the Street Scholars Summer Leadership Training Program.
$100 provides a month of sustenance (snacks and drinks) for our hungry scholars!
$50 provides program materials for one scholar for one academic year (two semesters).
$25 provides program materials for one scholar for one semester.

All contributions are tax deductible.
READY, SET, GIVE! Help us reach our goal of $12,000 by December 31, 2014.
