We are hosting an online giving fundraiser to meet our end of the year fundraising goal. Any amount you can give will help us get there! For this event we will be highlighting the recent graduates. We are hoping to raise additional funds to support them moving into this next phase of life. Elevate Orphan continues to support the children throughout their attendance at a University. The students will continue to come home during the summers and receive any additional support if needed!
