My Personal Fundraising Page

My name is Angela Aquino. When I was teacher I personally have seen the impact of Children Rising . They have provided essential support for students who continually struggled in school. During this current pandemic, the same students face even greater challenges. The need for Children Rising to step in and bridge an even wider academic gap is all the more critical.

Together, one child at a time, we can close achievement gaps for these students. Join me in equipping vulnerable children to rise above challenges created by generations of poverty, violence, and educational inequity... and now a pandemic.

Since 2001, Children Rising has partnered with under-resourced community schools in the East Bay, coming alongside thousands of struggling children and youth. Last year, 400 children were given the gift of foundational learning, improved self-confidence, and the sense of hope that always follows. But there are so many more loving and intelligent children who deserve the same chance to learn and have a much better opportunity to realize their potential as they grow.

Children Rising has the audacious goal of empowering 2,000 students each year by 2022!

Please join me as we all work together to empower many more of Oakland’s most vulnerable children rise to their potential! My goal is to raise $250.

 Will you join me in being part of the solution and support our students today?
