The mission of Peoria Promise is to support economic development by increasing the number of city of Peoria high school graduates who complete a college or vocational program, thereby delivering a more skilled workforce.
The motivation of a full scholarship to Illinois Central College not only encourages students to graduate from high school, but also allows them the opportunity to attain a college degree. In a recent survey, 49% of graduates at Peoria High School and 43% of graduates at Manual High School say Peoria Promise strongly affected their plans to stay in school until they graduated.
Economic development is the key and it is what sets Peoria Promise apart. Supporting Peoria Promise helps strengthen and build our community, as 76% of ICC graduates stay in this area to live and work. For every $1 invested in Peoria Promise, $28 will be returned to the community over the working life of the student – this equates to a 38% return on investment!
Please join us on June 14th by making a donation to Peoria Promise. Your donation could help us win an additional $30,000!!
