Pass With Flying Colors

Bucktown 5k is proud to support a new charity organization this year, Pass With Flying Colors.

Pass With Flying Colors (PWFC) is providing economic opportunity for Chicago’s disadvantaged communities by increasing college graduation rates among low-income and first-generation students. Their mission is to prepare these students for college and career success.

Kenny and Paula Goldman founded Pass With Flying Colors to enhance the natural motivation of under-served students in the academic middle and provide access to opportunities for their future. With equal focus on college access and persistence, Pass With Flying Colors scholars will graduate from college at dramatically higher rates than peers. Equipped with a bachelor's degree, they'll enter meaningful careers that provide economic opportunity and choice in their adult lives.

When you contribute to Pass With Flying Colors, you help students succeed. Since 2010, their programs have provided motivated students with 1:1 support, mentoring and leadership development so they can achieve their college dreams. Today, 97% Pass With Flying Colors scholars are on track to become the first in their family to earn a college degree.

Your gift will provide the resources to continue and expand their programs! Click here to make a donation to Pass With Flying Colors, or visit their website to learn about other ways you can contribute!
