Fund a Future

It’s estimated that COVID-related out of school time has expanded existing education achievement gaps for unhoused students by 15% to 20%

The pandemic forced schools across Indiana to adopt remote learning for long periods of time. Studies show that the average amount of learning loss related to the pandemic is six months. For children without a home, that number is greater than one year.

Now, more than ever, children facing homelessness need extra educational support.  With your support, we can ensure that more K-12 students in Indianapolis who are impacted by homelessness are able to rebuild grade level skills and meet critical educational milestones.

A gift of $1,000 funds a full semester of tutoring and wraparound educational support for one child, and creates the foundation for future academic success. Companies who Fund a Future with a gift of $1,000 will have their logo included in a full-page School on Wheels ad in the IBJ’s 2022 Giving Guide. Individuals will be publicly recognized this December.

Make your Fund a Future pledge today and consider bundling it with sponsorship of School on Wheels 2022 Education Celebration on April 28 where we’ll be celebrating 20 years of impact. Combined Fund a Future and Education Celebration sponsorships start at just $3,500 and align your organization with a nonprofit helping shift the trajectory for Indianapolis children and families impacted by homelessness.
