Ready, Set, College!

Mile High United Way's Tocqueville Society supports first-generation college students as they head off to school this Fall 2021.

Thank you for supporting Ready, Set, College!

Our 2021 Ready, Set, College! event was a success thanks to our incredible Tocqueville Society donors. Because of their support, 35 first-generation college students received a backpack that included a laptop, Target gift card, and essential school supplies to help them start the Fall semester off right.

Backpacks were distributed to participants in our Bridging the Gap program as well as nonprofit partners, including Florence Crittenton, Boys Hope Girls Hope, Girls Inc., Goodwill, and Precious Child. To all of our Tocqueville Society members that sponsored a student or donated their time to fill backpacks, we cannot thank you enough!

"Thank you so much for my new laptop! It is the perfect school supply as I begin my college experience. I am studying nursing at CCA and I know it will come in handy for my Chemistry and lab courses. Please pass on my gratitude to your generous donors!" - Mariana
