Atlanta, Georgia (PressExposure) August 18, 2011 -- Cheryl Dukes founder and executive director of the Colored Rock Foundation claims; "Through we applaud students who go to college, not everyone needs or wants to take that step in order to find their walk in life," and " We believe all walks of life are necessary in order to have a functioning society". To achieve this vision, the Colored Rocks Foundation accepts a variety of donations and support.
Donation can be a check payable to the Colored Rocks Foundation, Inc. and mailed to 1270 Caroline Street, Bldg D, Ste. 120-145, Atlanta, GA 30307. Matching gift programs from companies are also accepted. A tribute donation to one of the Colored Rocks scholars will be an in honor to one of them. Planned giving through one's will, life insurance or retirement plan is also a good donation option.
The Colored Rocks Foundation is also glad to accept in-kind donations for everything from advertising, to airline travel, jewelry, printing, photography, accounting and office space. Apart from in-kind support, a monthly giving plan and donation of stocks will be a great help to Colored Rocks. Volunteers to host special fundraisers by motivating friends and family, and by creating and managing fundraisers will help the foundation. By receiving your donations, the Colored Rocks Foundation will spend less on items needed to conduct business, allowing it to provide more prizes to Colored Rocks contestants.
Given that Georgia holds one of the nation's lowest graduation rates in the country where almost 1 out of 3 young men of color struggle to graduate from Georgia high schools, the Colored Rocks Foundation aims to help increase the numbers of African Americans, Native Americans, Latino Americans, Asian Pacific Americans and Multi-Racial Americans completing high school and utilizing their skills and talent to make a positive impact and good contribution in their communities.
