As a board member, I’m very fortunate to hear about the awesome work our staff and volunteers do every single day in our schools and community. But sometimes I get to hear directly from our students and that is particularly special. Every time I get to experience 826michigan’s work in such an intimate way I am overwhelmed with completely undeserved pride.

I’m also, in all honesty, overwhelmed in a different way as well. It’s startling to consider the need that remains. There are so many more students and schools that we could be helping. And we’re getting there. 826michigan is growing! Growing at an incredible rate and we have moved beyond establishing the model. Now it’s time to scale. The model is proven, the relationships have been cast, and the demand is strong. We need resources to take our work to more schools and more children.

 So many of you support us because you care about our dedicated tutors, our incredibly smart staff and the students we serve. Please join me in supporting 826michigan in the most meaningful way possible. Please contribute at a level that inspires and challenges us to continue to expand and reach more school-aged students who absolutely need our help. –Joe Malcoun
