The Student Support Network is a 501(c)3 organization that depends on the generosity of donors to improve the lives of local children living in poverty. We welcome and appreciate in-kind donations and philanthropic contributions of all sizes.
We are currently in the midst of our 2021-2022 campaign: Back to School, Still in Need. As the COVID-19 pandemic has persisted and we have settled into new ways of working and living, some of us have been fortunate enough to feel like things are somewhat “back to normal.”
For many individuals living in poverty or on a survival budget, however, the ongoing stresses of the pandemic have only exacerbated already difficult situations. Baltimore County Public School students have returned to in-person education, but the need is greater than ever: poverty levels in Baltimore County have risen nearly 10% since 2020.
Our goal is to raise $500,000 through our Back to School, Still in Need campaign, and all contributions made in the current fiscal year are counted toward this goal. Meeting it will enable us to expand to twenty schools, hire an additional staff member, and invest in our endowment — creating future sustainability. For more information, please read our campaign statement, and we thank you in advance for your generosity!
