GIFTS FROM THE BURTON FAMILY FOUNDATION AND GATEWAY COMMUNITY COLLEGE ENABLE NORTHBRIDGE COLLEGE SUCCESS PROGRAM TO SUPPORT MORE STUDENTS

PHOENIX (January 28, 2019) – Two major donations will help the
NorthBridge College Success Program support 20 more students with learning
disabilities to succeed in college.

The Burton Family Foundation’s generous $50,000 donation and the $40,000 donation from
GateWay Community College will run through May 2020. They are paving the way for students
registered with the Disability Resource office to get support at GateWay Community College’s
campus.

Support provided to selected participants include specialized one-on-one tutoring, mentoring/executive function training, and socialization opportunities at no cost to the participant.

This support will help propel the
student to academic success and help these students realize that College IS Possible,” said
Allison Mintz, NorthBridge’s Executive Director.

“We are so humbled and honored to have The Burton Family Foundation and GateWay
Community College’s support of our program. Their investment will help to ensure that students
entering the GWCC program have the support and resources they need to succeed,” she said.

Applications are still available for the spring semester. All Gateway students registered with
DRS are eligible to apply. To apply for the program contact Daylee Burr at
dburr@northbridgeaz.org.
