El Monte Promise Foundation - Tamalada Fundraiser
The El Monte Promise Foundation is working to create a seamless cradle to college pathway for the City of El Monte and surrounding neighborhoods. We are focused on making population level change by institutionalizing and strengthening partnerships between local government, multiple school districts, colleges, businesses, educators, parents and students to strengthen the educational support systems and make college a realistic option for families.
El Monte Promise Foundation launched the Scholars Savings Program to help families start savings for college from a young age. Families can engage in saving for their child’s education by opening a 529 college savings account. El Monte Promise Foundation has set up an incentive structure that builds the habit of saving by rewarding deposit frequency!
The Scholars Savings Program is open to any student in our partner districts, El Monte City School District, Mountain View School District, and El Monte Union High School District. We currently provide “Scholar Dollar” incentives for 14 schools within our partner districts and are fundraising to go district wide in all three school districts by 2020.
