Make a Donation

Now YOU can give back to Upward Bound...
Upward Bound is a grant-funded educational opportunity program that helps low-income, first generation high school students from surrounding areas achieve their dreams of going on to college. Former Upward Bound students and their families now have the opportunity to further their legacy with the program by providing a donation to our Upward Bound Scholarship Fund. Any donations to the program go directly towards helping our students fund their post-secondary education. The Upward Bound scholarship fund specifically assists students with dual credit classes and AP tests.

In 2013-2014, Upward Bound assisted UB juniors and seniors in taking more than 40 credits in dual credit courses.

If you would like to make a donation, please call the UB office at 816.501.2904.

You may also mail your check to the following address and a receipt will be mailed/emailed to you immediately. Please put UB SCHOLARSHIP in the memo line.
