Donate to CREED

Our young people and their college aspirations are so important; Consider contributing to CREED today!

Since our founding in February 2010, CREED has provided College Readiness Programs, Individual Education Consulting sessions and Undergraduate Student Mini-grants and other support to over 500 students and their families. Our programs are tailored to help our student participants get to college and provide support for them while there. We work to supplement the hard work of our students’ families, schools, churches and community stakeholders.


As a result, CREED students are making practical, affordable and attainable college choices. However, decreased financial aid, reduced campus support services and families faced with the complicated realities of a tough economic climate are experiencing extraordinary challenges. The need for CREED’s commitment to student success is more important than ever.


We have been able to accomplish this with minimal resources.  

  • $5.00 provides a middle school student with a college planning kit.
  • $25.00 funds our high school student’s college tours and overnight visits.
  • $50.00 to $250.00 allows CREED to administer mini-grants to our undergraduates for unexpected book expenses or emergency travel costs.

As we move forward, it will be the generosity of our donors that will make us successful in our work.  Though these are difficult times for us all, please consider making a tax deductible gift to CREED now to help us continue our support of our youth. Any contribution will be well used and appreciated.  CREED is a tax exempt 501(c)3 organization.
