For every dollar that you donate between now and June 30, 2011, KIPP:DFW will receive TWO dollars up to a total of $125,000!
KIPP:DFW is grateful to the generous donors who made this matching grant possible.
In honor of the tremendous difference our teachers make, KIPP:DFW has extended Teacher Appreciation Week into Teacher Appreciation Month! Please donate today in honor of a teacher who inspired you and to support our inspiring teachers at KIPP:DFW.
Your Contribution Promotes KIPP:DFW "extras" such as extended school hours (30 percent more than neighborhood schools), educational field lessons and college visits, and the ongoing support that helps urban students gain acceptance to high-performing high schools and colleges.
KIPP:DFW is part of the nationally renowned Knowledge is Power Program (KIPP), a frequent newsmaker whose groundbreaking work is championed in The New York Times Bestsellers, Work Hard. Be Nice. and Outliers: The Story of Success, and the recent documentary, Waiting for “Superman."
Where only 65 percent of neighborhood students graduate high school and 50 percent go on to college, 95 percent of KIPPsters nationally graduate and 85 percent go on to college.
KIPP:DFW’s mission is to provide underserved children with a free, rigorous, high-quality education that offers the knowledge, skills and character traits necessary to thrive in school, college and the competitive world beyond.
