As 2016 draws to a close, we hope that you have much to be proud of and look back on fondly. Certainly, we hope that your support of the Emily K Center is one of those things. You have helped so many students achieve their dreams this year.
Emily K Center's first Duke attendee

In May, we cheered as our largest class of high school seniors, 25 in total, all celebrated their college acceptances. In August, we welcomed our largest enrollment of K to College students ever at nearly 240. Then in September, we rolled out our brand new college access program, Game Plan: College

It has been a busy year, but there is still more work to be done; there are still more students chasing their dreams. Would you make a gift before the end of the year to help make sure all of our students can make their dreams a reality? We want every one of our students to experience a moment like high school senior Christian did just two weeks ago when he found out that he would be attending Duke University next year on a full ride! Christian will be the first in his family to go to college and the first Emily K Center student to attend Duke University. 

You can make a gift today here. Every dollar you give will directly impact our students and their college aspirations.  The Krzyzewski family is also generously matching all gifts received before the end of the year, up to $25,000, so your gift will instantly double!

Emily K Center's first Ivy League attendeeYour support changes lives and makes dreams come true. High school senior Javi is another great example. Just last week, Javi found out that he was accepted at the University of Pennsylvania and will attend next fall with a full scholarship. Javi is the first Emily K Center student to attend an Ivy League university and is more proof that you are helping turn our students' dreams into reality. 

Thank you for your support. We can't wait to see what dreams we can achieve together in 2017.

P.S.  Your support helps dreams come true for students like Christian and Javi, pictured above. Will you make a gift before the end of the year and help even more students achieve their dreams? If you give before December 31, your gift can be doubled thanks to a match from the Krzyzewski family!
