Building Our Future:
a virtual fundraising event to benefit Summit Academy OIC
On June 29, 2020, Summit’s Building Our Future virtual fundraising event raised more than $583,000 to provide opportunities that build economic empowerment in our community and demonstrate that the best social service program in the world is a job!
Our goal at Summit is to reduce inequitable access to education and employment and ensure that everyone in our community has a chance to build their own thriving future. Watch graduate Nathan Richardson talk about how Summit was the key to unlocking his potential.
You can view the Building Our Future livestream here.
Every contribution, no matter the amount, helps Summit close the gap between the haves and the have nots. Through your support, more families are able to secure a solid foothold in the middle class.
A very special thank you to the Building Our Future Matching Challenge Fund Supporters.
