Keep our Determined Students on Track and THRIVING

Now more than ever, many of our students rely on the Midnight Golf Program as their only source of support. Financial requests have exceeded $100,000 for this semester and we anticipate that need to grow even higher throughout the year.

We refuse to let this challenging situation get in the way of our young people’s dreams of earning their degrees. MGP is committed to helping this year’s cohort of 200 high school seniors and 1,800 college students and early career professionals access the resources they need to continue to thrive during this crucial time in their lives. Your donation is an investment in our young people’s future.

Stories of Determination

LEON JONES

Leon Jones

Senior, Oakwood University
Financial Gap: $1,815 for spring semester tuition

“During my senior year of high school, my whole world was shaken when my mom passed away from cancer. She was my rock and always believed in me. Although I’ve lost my best friend, I use her death as motivation to become the man I promised her I would become. I am well on my way to graduate next year and need help with my current gap to cross the finish line.”

MGP IMPACT: With the on-going support of Leon’s MGP mentors and coaches, he accessed $5,000 from our Student Support Fund for his fall semester.

SHA’KIYA MADISON

Leon Jones

Senior, Tuskegee University
Financial Gap: $4,000

“As a result of the pandemic, my mother works graveyard shifts at Oakwood Hospital in Dearborn as a critical care nurse. She is a single parent of two and cannot contribute as much as she’d like to my education. Without a job, rent and other household expenses have become overwhelming. I also recently lost my choir scholarship as a result of the pandemic.”

MGP IMPACT: Jan and Bob Lee, generous longtime MGP supporters, completely eliminated Sha’Kiya’s financial gap and she remains enrolled for her senior year and is on track to earn her degree in Animal Science Pre-Vet.

We’re proud of our results this year

“MGP plays such an important role in helping students trouble-shoot as they navigate their way into and through their college experience.  Never has this role been more important than during the COVID-19 crisis–the MGP students faced new obstacles to their success, and MGP was there to help them succeed.  We were eager to help a student find a solution to her problem, and when we learned that Sha’Kiya was an avid choral student, we wanted to assist her.  Choral music has been an important experience in our family for generations.  Two of our daughters were very active in choral music through school, and the discipline, camaraderie and performance experience was so important to their education.  We are excited to help Sha’Kiya succeed and are so happy that MGP is helping so many students stay in and finish college.”
