TRM Kids Need Our Help
by Cari Catts
Did you know that only 0.4% of West Dallas' Class of 2016 graduated college-ready, that local Hispanics are 89% less likely to graduate in 4 years than any other ethnic group, and that they're also the least likely to attend college (even if they have stellar grades)?

TRM kids are up against some pretty tough odds. But, because of the Believe & Achieve Scholarship Fund and Program, they're beating them and graduating at an average rate of 95% and enrolling in college at an average rate of 90% each year. I know these kids. I work with them every day. They have the talent, the potential, and the drive to become incredible, successful, and productive adults. All they need is US to believe in them.

A gift of just $30 will provide the college and career readiness, life skills, and supportive relationships these kids need to pursue their dreams.

TRM Class of '19 Scholarship Fundraiser
by Paul Warren
I believe in education. I believe in opportunity. I had ample access to both when growing up, and I passionately seek to do my part to provide those same opportunities for students. Trinity River Mission's (TRM) goal is to provide, "educational and social opportunities
that inspire students and their families to dream, believe, and achieve." I can say with 100% certainty that TRM does just that. With that being said, through North Texas Giving Day, there is an opportunity to fulfill a huge need here at TRM. Every year we focus on ensuring that our graduating seniors have the resources to go on to higher education. Every senior that fulfills all of their requirements for TRM receives a scholarship of $1,000 a year for all four years of college. Without the generosity of individual donors, we cannot provide the students with such a wonderful opportunity.

My minimum goal is $500 dollars, but I do not want to stop there. It is my hope to fully fund one student's scholarship which would be a total of $4,000. Can you help me achieve my goal so that TRM can help another student achieve theirs?

Help Support Scholarships for Low-Income High School Seniors
by Abe Benavides
Last year, I started as a tutor with Trinity River Mission (TRM), a non-profit that provides after-school tutoring and mentoring for primarily Hispanic students in West Dallas. I have witnessed first-hand the dedication of the staff, volunteers, and the students themselves, who work together to make the most out of the critical after-school hours, where students can catch-up and get ahead, as opposed to falling behind or worse.

This year, I've been fortunate to join TRM's Board of Directors, and I am working to help TRM's students in any way I can. TRM provides scholarship assistance to its graduating seniors each year through its Believe & Achieve program (link: http://trinityrivermission.org/believe-and-achieve/). The Believe & Achieve program is funded entirely through North Texas Giving Day funds. I hope you'll consider joining me in contributing to the Believe & Achieve program, so that TRM's kids have the help they need in making their college dreams come true!

Support the Believe & Achieve Scholarship Fund at TRM!
by Amber Green
North Texas Giving Day is an 18-hour online giving event designed to empower individuals to give back to their community by supporting local nonprofits and causes on one easy-to-use platform. This year's giving event will be held on September 20th, and all funds raised for Trinity River Mission (TRM) will benefit the Believe and Achieve Scholarship Fund and Program.

While Believe and Achieve provides educational and social enrichment opportunities to 6th - 12th grade students, our kids are still up against some pretty tough odds--living in a community labeled a "pipeline-to-prison." However, with the Believe & Achieve Scholarship Fund and Program, they are beating the odds and graduating at an average rate of 95%, while enrolling in college at an average rate of 90% each year.

I know these kids. I work with them every day. They have the talent, the potential, and the drive to become incredible, successful, and productive adults. At TRM, we believe in our students and their ability to achieve beyond their wildest dreams. Won't YOU be a believer with us?

A gift of just $30 will provide the college and career readiness, life skills, and supportive relationships our kids need to pursue their dreams.

Go TRM!
by Ravi Rowthu
Did you know that only 0.4% of West Dallas' Class of 2016 graduated college ready. TRM (Trinity River Mission) works with kids that are up against some pretty tough odds. But, because of their Believe & Achieve Scholarship Fund and Program, they're beating the odds and graduating at an average rate of 95% and enrolling in college at an average rate of 90% each year. I had a chance to work with one of the kids last year and it is amazing what I learnt from that experience. These are kids that are talented, passionate, ready to work hard and have the drive to become successful and productive adults. All they need is US to believe in them.

A gift of any amount will help the program in providing college/career readiness, life skills and support relationships these kids need to pursue their dreams. Can they count on you?

Thank you for your support, God Bless!
