You are an inspiration.

Because of you, 1,600 Steppingstone Scholars know they can BE MORE.

Each time you support Steppingstone, you help transform how Boston students think about their lives and their potential. Your generosity isn’t simply a check or a number; it’s a word of encouragement and the inspiration to strive for more.


“Steppingstone has helped me be more confident and determined.”


“More creative and resourceful.”


“More kind. More brave. And more hopeful.”


“More optimistic and open-minded.”


“More helpful. More successful. More happy!”

With countless obstacles for Boston students to overcome, and with citywide college graduation rates under 20%*, the need for your support is great. But your impact can be even greater.

If you’ve already made a year-end gift to support Steppingstone Scholars, we couldn’t be more grateful. If you’d like to support Scholars in 2016, there’s still time to give online.

Thank you for helping Boston students dream big and be more!


*In Boston, fewer than 20% of district high school graduates complete a four-year college degree (Northeastern University, Center for Labor Market Studies, 2013), while 77% of Steppingstone Scholars earn a degree from a four-year college after graduating high school.
