Chicago politicians, Oprah Studios, movie stars, famous musicians, and professional athletes would frequent the family's establishment. Join PLAN4SUCCESS in continuing her legacy to help young people succeed with your donation to our 2023 #PLANTOGIVE scholarship fundraising campaign.
We have more than one way to contribute, you can start your own team, and all donation amounts are welcomed!
What is GIVE100
GIVE100 is a fundraising campaign created by PLAN4SUCCESS to raise money for underserved college students to help bridge the gap in securing basic needs for college. In today's climate, most underserved students' financial aid packages include high loan amounts and less disposable income. PLAN4SUCCESS awards scholarships to help students pay for books, transportation, and basic needs to start the school year off with the capacity to succeed! Donors are asked to donate $100 towards a scholarship, but any amount you can give is welcomed!
What is GIVE LEGACY
Have you wanted to establish a scholarship in a loved one’s memory? Let's honor and continue the legacy and good name of that beloved person in your life. Perhaps, you would like just to cover one full scholarship for a student or become a team member and raise funds within your family structure in honor of your family legacy.
*All Legacy Scholarships are a minimum donation of $500 each. Your entire donation will sponsor one student scholarship under the Legacy Team.
