What You Don't Know...

Prep for the Future Campaign

You never know. For some, the phrase invokes paralyzing fear. For me, it presents a motivating challenge. When I started the Foresight Design Initiative 15 years ago, I was convinced that education was a good bet in a turbulent world. It still is the best wager we can make for a more vibrant and resilient future. I’m writing to invite your support. The Foresight Prep @ Oberlin high school summer program began last month. By the time it concludes in 3 weeks, we’re aiming to have $20K raised to continue to support its participants from across the country, and build support for an even better program in 2018. 

It only takes a minute to make a one-time, or monthly, tax-deductible donation. Is it worth it? Take a minute to view some of the alumni stories, each of whom didn’t allow uncertainty to impede their trajectories, but rather grasped the moment, and many subsequent opportunities, to generate a positive inflection in their own lives and, quite possibly, in ours.

Because, you never know.
