College Possible awarded $75,000 grant

A $75,000 grant awarded to College Possible Milwaukee will help the nonprofit continue coaching low-income high school students with college preparation and readiness programming.

 

The Greater Milwaukee Foundation is behind the grant in line with its aim to enhance the quality of education in Milwaukee.

“We are grateful for the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s continued support of our program,” said Edie Turnbull, executive director of College Possible Milwaukee. “Thanks to this investment, we are able to help more low-income Milwaukee students earn not just admission to college but college degrees.”

College Possible’s Milwaukee chapter, established in 2008, works with more than 600 high school students at 10 partner high schools through after-school programming and academic guidance.

The nonprofit also provides continual coaching and support to more than 800 college students at schools across the country.
