FOSTERING HIGHER EDUCATION
During these unprecedented times, Fostering Higher Education for All is honored to support students in Central Florida, help close learning gaps, and provide vital services to support elementary, middle, and high school students' well-being during these uncertain times. Post pandemic, we are committed to supporting remediation and literacy programs to catch our students up from being behind due to the year and a half of academic learning loss from digital learning due to COVID. In addition, we provide brand new books to underserved students and books to schools that serve low-income African Americans and students of color to create classroom libraries.
Our high-school program provides free SAT/ACT testing preparation, complimentary breakfast and lunch during tutoring sessions, scientific calculators, up to five free college books for their first semester of college, gas cards, paid college application costs, and ACT/SAT waivers. Our high school programming will build critical thinking skills, which will be used in our student's future higher education and post-high-school career endeavors.
Fostering Hope for All makes sure homeless children and youth have access to food, clothing, shelter, supplemental education, and other wraparound services to meet our vulnerable students' needs. We also partner with school districts to collaborate and advocate for homeless students to provide hope and maintain stability for students and their families who do not have a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence. Our program's feeding portion is a critical component of our program, which is used to fight against hunger and food insecurity in our community.
Foster Grants and Giving Inc. makes Community Collaboration with community leaders, nonprofits, schools, local school districts, churches, small businesses, and social agencies a priority for our company. That is the reason our slogan is "Helping the Helpers" because we collaborate and do everything humanly possible to provide aid where it is needed the most with a dedication and understanding of humanity and care. Collaboration with community leaders, businesses, programs, volunteers, and social agencies is invaluable for our program, which provides all the necessary support and wraparound services for our students.
