Since 2005, 100% of Carver seniors have graduated high school on time, and almost all become first generation college students. But that is not the end of the relationship for Carver. To date, 85% of our Carver college students graduate from four-year colleges and universities within six years and many of them received financial support and personal advocacy from Carver throughout those years. We need to do more. We as a community can do more. Your financial support of Carver youth endures beyond high school. Your generosity Builds Lifetime Achievers who go on to impact our community for generations to come.
Carver partners with many organizations and we celebrate their success. The Triangle Community Center was the second grant recipient of 100 Who Care Darien in the amount of $10,000. Triangle, Carver and Laurel House in Stamford each presented our cases for support, and Triangle won the vote of the members who attended the event this past Wednesday evening.
