We'd love to see you on Friday, March 22, 2024, at 6:00 pm.
Edu-Futuro, a nonprofit based in Arlington, VA with offices in Fairfax and Prince William Counties, VA will host its 26th Anniversary Gala on March 22, 2024, to celebrate the achievements of the immigrant youth and families that it serves through its life-changing programs. Edu-Futuro serves every year more than 2,500 families, including children, youth, and adults through its programs—the Emerging Leaders Programs (STEM Robotics Clubs, Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) Part I: Leadership and Career Exploration, Part II: College Application, Financial Aid and Scholarships, Part III: College Students Support), Parent Empowerment Services, Case Management and Workforce Development Services.
Edu-Futuro has been consistently recognized for its successful programs and leadership. In recognition of our work on behalf of immigrant families in the Summer of 2023, Edu-Futuro was named Southeast Affiliate of the Year by UnidosUS, the largest Latino civil rights organization in the United States with nearly 300 affiliates nationwide. Edu-Futuro was also recognized in the Fall of 2023 as a Finalist at “Examples of Excelencia” by Excelencia in Education, the only national data-driven initiative to recognize programs accelerating Latino student success.
As we prepare to celebrate 26 years of service to immigrant families, Edu-Futuro is proud to report that our response to the coronavirus crisis established our organization as one of the largest providers of direct financial aid to immigrant families in the Washington region, offering case management services to more than 1,500 households, and disbursing over $2,000,000 for rent, food, utilities, and other basic necessities. Despite the enormous challenges of the pandemic, we can also report that the 175 outstanding high school seniors who graduated from our Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) during the past three years were collectively offered $7,528,737 in life-changing scholarships and financial aid for their first year of college, and a remarkable $26,256,444 in four-year renewable scholarships and financial aid.
Why participate? Why donate?
As a Sponsor of the Edu-Futuro Gala you will support an organization that provides job development, college access, college support, academic enrichment, and support for parents to resolve family issues, obtain jobs, and empower them to navigate educational system advocating on their children’s behalf, and helping them academically. There are plenty of reasons to sponsor our Edu-Futuro Gala:
- It is strategic: Our Gala will bring together approximately 240 influential citizens of the community, including elected officials, staff, and administrators from Fairfax, Arlington, Prince William, and Alexandria Government and City Public Schools, colleges and universities, diplomats, and business owners. These and other special guests all share our passion to improve the lives of Latinos and other immigrants, as well as first generations, by making education available to them. Sponsorship of the Gala and the publicity surrounding the event will associate your organization with this worthy cause and confirm your organization's/company’s reputation as a strong community leader.
- It is results-oriented: Of the students who completed the ELP I program 97% exhibited the confidence, abilities, and skills needed to stay on the college track. Also, 100% of our ELP II youth successfully enrolled in college.
- It’s local: Our work empowers youth to access postsecondary education and to obtain their first professional job in the DC Metro Area, giving them the chance to strengthen their communities and contribute to our regional economy, and to break the cycle of poverty.
- It’s a way to show you care: Your sponsorship will publicly demonstrate your commitment to supporting the Latino and other immigrant communities.
