Dear Friend of Oakland International High School,
For many of us, this year has been met with many challenges along with unique opportunities to celebrate our successes and most importantly our students. During this stressful time of year when seniors are deciding which colleges they can afford to attend next year, one thing that continues to inspire us is the ongoing support we get from our community and friends. Your commitment to opening doors and hearts to our immigrant community fuels our work!
Your contributions to our annual Opening Doors Scholarship Fund have been instrumental to the lives of all the scholarship recipients as they begin their journey to accessing higher education with very limited resources.
It was with our community's support that we have been able to sustain our Opening Doors Scholarship program at OIHS and even grow the number of recipients last year from six to fourteen! (Click here for a glimpse at some of this year's seniors whose short videos from their media class will be premiered at our annual OIHS Film Festival.)
We hope you consider donating to our Opening Doors Scholarship Fund this year between now and May 10. All money raised goes directly to help our 2019 recipients realize their college dreams and forever alter the trajectory of their lives and the lives of their future children and family.
How To Donate
To make a tax deductible donation, you can make an online contribution here by May 10th. 100% of the donations between now and May 10th will be allocated to the Opening Doors Scholarship fund, so please donate today!
What Your Support Means to our Students
Watch the short video below (made by an OIHS alum!) to see the impact that an "Opening Doors" scholarship has had on one of our graduates from the Class of 2016. The scholarships will be announced and presented to the recipients on the graduation ceremony of the Class of 2019.
In solidarity and with the deepest gratitude,
Oakland International High School Opening Doors Scholarship Committee
