Your Help Matters

Give the Gift of Higher Education

Generation 1st Degree-Pico Rivera is making it its mission to support the vitality and educational growth of Pico Rivera students in order to better prepare them for higher education.

Your donation to the educational and scholarship programs we provide to the students is critical to their ongoing success. Without your help, many students will not be able to realize their dreams of a college education. Your generous contributions will make an enormous difference to many deserving students.

GENERATION 1ST DEGREE-PICO RIVERA’S COLLEGE AID TOWN HALL

A donation of $10 assists the organization in the planning and execution of a yearly College Aid Town Hall event, where the entire city of Pico Rivera is invited to attend to become better informed on how to support their child’s higher education efforts.

GENERATION 1ST DEGREE-PICO RIVERA’S COLLEGE ESSAY WORKSHOPS

Your gift of $20 supports our efforts to organize and provide an ongoing workshop series to teach students how to write a stand-out personalized essay that will help set them apart from others and convey clearly why they should be accepted into the college(s) of their choice. Additionally, funding will assist us in bringing top experts from area universities to provide valuable feedback to students on their personal essays.

EDUCATION FUND FOR EXCELLENCE

By donating $50, to the unrestricted fund, you will bolster our student programs, faculty, and facilities where the need is greatest.

PICO RIVERA’S READING ROOTS

Help us plant the seeds of a lifelong love of reading by donating $100 to help provide books to every single kindergarten student in the city every fall. Every $100 donation helps purchase 25 brand new age-appropriate books.

BE A LEADER PROGRAM FUND

With every $500 gift, you are allowing four senior students to participate in a series of college preparation workshops, which take place on a college campus, and gives them a detailed and easy to navigate “support system” during the college and scholarship application process.
