You make it possible for Summit to offer life changing education and job skills to students at no cost to them, with no debt.
Why Support Summit?
Our community is facing unprecedented challenges and opportunities – workforce shortages coupled with high demands for labor and all-time low unemployment rates. Summit Academy is a pipeline for the skilled and motivated workforce that is strengthening Minnesota’s economy and diversifying the workforce.
To continue to offer the community the educational opportunities that are transforming lives and bolstering the economy, we need your help. We can’t do it without you. Donate today.
The 1,000 GED Campaign equips workers with the education, marketable skills, and strong social networks that lead to family-sustaining employment and further improves economic security.
Through the generous philanthropic support of committed institutions and individuals this campaign will:
- Ensure that 1,000 Summit students earn their GED over the next 5 years
- Increase the skill set and earning potential in low-income communities
- Solidify recognition of the GED as a powerful workforce development tool
“We are investing in the 1,000 GED Campaign because vibrant and healthy communities flourish when their people are working. All of us—businesses, non-profits, and government—need to come together to ensure that our community is not leaving people on the sidelines.”
-U.S. Bank President & CEO Andy Cecere
