We are grateful for your support

Thank you

As we move towards closing out the year, we are pleased to announce that nine of our Rise Together Education scholars completed their bachelor's degrees. Many are applying to graduate schools, some are looking for career advice and/or job opportunities. Their success is partly a reflection of you and our caring community and generous donors and volunteers. We thank you in advance for your support and for providing mentorship, advice and job opportunities to these students to help them succeed. Thank you!

Our scholars are impressive! RTE statistics: 8/10 students from Paly's Class of 2016 at four-year colleges have graduated in May or are graduating in December. One student is in a five-year program & is on his way to graduation. Ryan Mendoza (Paly '17) is also graduating next month! These young people are an inspiration to all. We look forward to seeing their positive contribution to our community and the world.

Much love to our sponsors & donors

We could not have assisted our scholars without the financial support of matching employee donations from Apple, Google and Cisco and their committed employees, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund, Silicon Valley Community Foundation, Sereno Group, Pizza My Heart, dozens of local businesses who provided auction items and the hundreds of caring Palo Alto families and passionate Paly staff.
