Hear From Our Monthly Donors
It is very rewarding to know that even the smallest gesture can make a big difference in the lives of others, and at IDEA, our commitment never ends.
What IDEA does is important. I’m happy to support, albeit a small amount of money each month, but it’ll buy a book for someone.
IDEA staff work hard to prepare students for college. By donating, we help them get even closer to that finish line.
We are now accepting applications for the 2023-24 school year for Ohio, Florida, and the majority of Texas schools. Whether you are new to IDEA or have a new sibling coming to IDEA, be sure to submit your application.
