Helping 16 bright poor students return to college

We are very happy to report that our project is moving in the right direction towards achieving its goal of helping 16 students in challenging economic situation to be able to fund their college studies after successfully completing half of their college careers.

Since our last report, thanks to the kind support of the Panthera Edge Foundation, and of other generous individuals, we have been able to secure the necessary funding to support two new beneficiaries: Andres Villareal, who is studying Systems Engineering and Laura Fandiño, who is studying Production Engineering, both at the EAN University in Bogota, Colombia.

Both of our beneficiaries were in deep need of financial assistance since the current pandemic situation has left their households without the required resources to cover their tuitions. The generous donations of our sponsors will allows to fund 100% of these beneficiaries tuition costs until they graduate.

The Daniel Rojas Mora Foundation was honored by the Rector and Chairman of the EAN University with a recognition ceremony where they expressed their gratitude with the support that the Foundation has given to eight of their students in need of financial resources to carry on with their studies, until they become professionals.

Thank you again for your kind support for this cause.

Helping 16 bright poor students return to college

We are glad to report that our project has received the sponsorship of Michigan based Panthera Edge Foundation. Panthera Edge fosters the development of successful, independent adults through initiatives focused on education, healthy living, and strong character.

With Panthera Edge’s kind support, The Daniel Rojas Mora Foundation will be able to sponsor a new beneficiary as of next semester. With the help of the EAN University, we are currently in the process of scouting for such beneficiary. Considering the current global situation there are many opportunities to help young students in severe economic need that are in high risk of having to abandon their academic studies due to lack of financial resources.

Specifically, we will be sponsoring 100% of the last four semesters tuition of a student on a STEM related career.

Our sponsor, the Panthera Edge Foundation has expressed interest in eventually sponsoring more beneficiaries, for which we are very grateful.

 Thank you in advance for your kind cooperation.

Helping 16 bright poor students return to college

The Daniel Rojas Mora Foundation has structured a new project called "Helping 16 poor bright poor students return to college".  The purpose of the project is to “rescue” 16 talented students that had to drop out of school for lack of financial resources by bringing them back to college and funding the rest of their tuition until they graduate. Specifically, the Foundation is aiming to fund the college studies of 4 students per semester for 2 years, for a total of 16 students. The total required investment is $184,743 of which the Foundation has secured 2/3 of such investment through another Foundation, who is willing to co-invest 1/3 of the required funds and the participating university who is willing to discount 1/3 of the tuition cost. Hence the remaining funds the Foundation needs to secure at this time are $61.581.   

We are glad to report that the project has already received its first donations towards its funding goal. We are deeply thankful with our initial donors. Our team is actively engaged in strategic and tactic activities that are aimed towards fundraising the required resources both nationally and internationally. Project supporters are volunteering to help promote the projects within their social networks. We will keep you posted as we progress towards our goal.

Thank you in advance for your kind cooperation.
