To an amazing new year!

The new year is just around the corner and here at BEAM we are excited to see what 2019 has in store!

But if we're excited, that's nothing compared to our graduating high school seniors who are applying to college. We've known these students since seventh grade, so our whole team (but maybe especially our college advising team) is so proud of them. Kadija has received a prestigious Questbridge scholarship to study at Princeton University. Lennin, who not just went to BEAM with Kadija but also worked at BEAM over the summer two years ago, is a Posse Scholar who will be attending Franklin & Marshall. Other students have already received early admission to schools including Dartmouth, the University of Albany, the Rochester Institute of Technology, Syracuse University, and SUNY Polytechnic Institute.

Congratulations to all of the BEAM high school graduates, and good luck to those still finishing up their applications!

Matching Campaign: Why π?

Our Board of Directors is currently π-ing all new and increased donations that happen between now and December 31, 2018, up to $275,000 of donations! What does that mean? For every $1 in new or increased donations from last year, our board members will personally donate $2.14159..., turning $1 into $π!

Why are we reaching π-high with this ambitious match? Because BEAM has grown a tremendous amount in the past year. BEAM opened in Los Angeles and doubled the size of our BEAM 6 program in New York City. We increased our year-round support for students and started a program of support for our college students. (You can catch up on all of these new initiatives in our Summer Report.) To sustain this growth, our board made a strategic choice to offer up to $600,000 of their own funds to grow our base of support.

Take a look at what Rosa said about her summer at BEAM:

       
       I've always felt like an outsider because I like math. Here I'm accepted.

Please be a part of ensuring that all of our new initiatives can continue to thrive.
