Dear Friends and Family,

Steph and I founded the South Bronx United 10 years ago in 2009. SBU was just a soccer team with a mission to make a difference in kids' lives. We didn't imagine it would become what it is today with services going far beyond the soccer pitch.

This year the organization passed $1 million in annual revenue for the first the time enabling us to reach more than 1,200 children and young people in the classroom, on the soccer field, supporting with immigration services and counseling, and more.

Within the past six years, 100% of seniors in our SBU Academy program have graduated high school, and 94% have enrolled in college. This is in a community that the last U.S. Census deemed the poorest Congressional District in America with a 49 percent child poverty rate and a 51 percent high school graduation rate.

We need your help to continue this growth and expand our impact in the community! Every dollar we raise will go back into ensuring that South Bronx United makes a difference in the lives thousands more children and families--particularly immigrant and first generation youth--over the next ten years. There is a lot more work to do. Immigrant youth and families we serve especially need our support to access college and carve a better life, through integral academic, social-emotional, and legal services. There are hundreds of children on waiting lists that SBU cannot reach due to capacity. We are expanding services to ensure students have the supports needed to stay in school and earn a degree. We need to strengthen academic programming for middle school students to help them get into better high schools. We are striving towards our long term goal of establishing a SBU community facility.

Support us in these goals by giving to the #POWEROF11: Give South Bronx youth the opportunity to join in as one of 11 players on the soccer field, one of 11 students in the classroom, or with a room of youth from 11 different nationalities.

The campaign closes on JUNE 11TH. Please reach out to me to find directly if you want to find out how else you can help!
