Sallie Mae Donates $250K to Delaware –

The Sallie Mae Fund, a charitable organization who supports educational initiatives, will donate $250,000 to help Delaware children prepare for college.

The grants, which will be dispersed over four years, will fund the Kids2College program. Geared toward middle school students, the program is designed to expose low-income minority students to the value and accessibility of a higher education.

The donation will also help expand the Delaware Boys and Girls Clubs educational and college awareness programs throughout the state, including learning resource centers, books and curriculum-based guides for tutors, and space for academic tutoring.
