Donate to REACH

REACH is UofL's centralized academic support program providing tutoring, workshops, and intervention classes through our 21st century learning center facilities. We will continue to raise monies that support signature programs that support our low-income and first-generation college students. These programs are essential for closing the achievement gap and helping students be retained and graduate from UofL.

Here is how your gift translates into impact for our students:

  • $11 covers 1 hour of tutoring a UofL student
  • $165 covers tutoring for 1 student for the entire semester (1 hr. per week)
  • $175 will allow for 4 weeks of instruction for one student during the summer Calculus Preview Program
  • $825 provides tutoring for 5 students for the entire semester
  • $875 will allow 4 weeks of Calculus Preview for 5 students
"Because I used my resources the summer before ENGR 101, I had a better foundation for the material and it was a smoother transition from high school Calculus to Speed School Calculus." Hannah Downs, Industrial Engineering

REACH Programming Gift Account (G2873)

Purpose: To enable REACH to leverage our current successes by expanding the number of students we serve as well as by responding to their evolving needs in key ways. Such efforts often target low-income and first-generation college students to enhance their college experience and advance their retention and graduation rates. Opportunities include signature events, such as our annual Etiquette Dinner which teaches students how to conduct themselves during formal dining experiences and interviews with employers, as well as through offering scholarships for retention initiatives like our Calculus Preview Program, a four-week summer preparatory experience that prepares incoming students for their first month of Engineering math coursework. It also helps fund key partnerships across campus, such as our mentoring efforts that target at-potential populations, including our Hispanic Latina/o students, and students in transition to the University.
