2021 Brought Continued Growth for PowerUP

2021 was a busy year for PowerUP. I signed joined PowerUP in September as Executive Director. We started Joanne Scee Memorial Fund in honor of Austin, our Co-Founder’s, mother.

Despite the continued setbacks from the pandemic, PowerUP grew in several ways. I’m proud to showcase them in our 2021 Annual Report. Putting the report together, reminded me of how much we’ve accomplished. We couldn’t have done it without the support of our donors and sponsors. Thank you for helping kids thrive!

Here are a few highlights:

  • We provided 2,500 hours
  • 168 students applied for mentorship
  • We served 150 students
  • $540,000 contributed by our donors

I invite you to read the report in its entirety. Included are photos and a video showcasing our students and their talent. Plus, you’ll get a chance to see where PowerUP is headed in 2022 and beyond.
