Grit doesn’t correlate with socioeconomic status. Your Giver contribution pays for the neediest students to build their Gritter Profiles and to fulfill their dreams by getting into a college that, without a Gritter Profile, they may never have considered applying to. We’ll let you know who received your contribution and you can follow their progress.
Founder $250

Your Founder contribution is a significant one that funds the organization’s ability to tell its story to the people who make it happen: Admissions Directors and Guidance Counselors. And you’ll be recognized as a Founder on the Rising Stars Foundation website.
Contributor Your amount

Your contribution of any amount is welcome. The appropriate level will be applied to your donation (e.g., donors who make donations above $250 will be considered to be Founders).
