Now YOU can give back to Upward Bound...

Upward Bound is a grant-funded educational opportunity program that helps low-income, first generation high school students from surrounding areas achieve their dreams of going on to college.  Former Upward Bound students and their families now have the opportunity to further their legacy with the program by providing a donation to our Upward Bound Scholarship Fund.  Any donations to the program go directly towards helping our students fund their post-secondary education.  All donations are tax-deductible.


Donations can be made directly through the Northwest Online Giving website.


On the Northwest Online Giving website, there are two ways to make a donation to the Upward Bound Scholarship Fund: 

  • When selecting the type of gift, choose the Existing Named Scholarships.  Then select Non-Departmental Scholarships; scroll down the list to find the Upward Bound Scholarship (located towards the bottom of the list).

  • Donors may also select Other as their type of gift, and write-in that they wish their donation to go towards the Upward Bound Scholarship Fund.
