Thank you for your donation to Heart of the City!
The kids in our communities, face physical, mental, and emotional challenges that delay future goals or derail them altogether. In 2019, the NSC Research Center found that only 56% of high school graduates from underfunded schools enroll in a post-secondary school. In Waukegan alone, 16,000 residents are living in poverty, with limited opportunity to enroll their kids in extra-curricular activities.
We depend on community support to help give kids affordable soccer programming, and the resources, confidence, and guidance to help them navigate toward a brighter future: volunteering with partner organizations, learning skills for staying healthy, attending referee and coach certification courses, going on college visits, and more.
With your gift, student-athletes can continue to envision their futures and score goals on and off the field.
100% of your donation will be used to provide affordable soccer, college and career readiness, and health and wellness programs for youth in Lake County.
Your generous gift is also tax-deductible.
