Last night, over 150 members of our Alliance community came together to celebrate our extraordinary Alliance scholars and alumni…tomorrow’s Leaders of Change. We were joined by friends across Los Angeles, from business, entertainment, philanthropy, city government, and education. We heard directly from Alliance alumni who affirmed how powerful it is when we invest in their bright futures.
In the words of Jose Guzman-Wug, Alliance Gertz-Ressler Class of 2022, and USC Class of 2026, “I know I wouldn’t be where I am today without the ongoing support of my family, friends, and the Alliance community. So I want to say thank you…to everyone here tonight for believing in me, and for believing that Alliance scholars can change the world for the better.”
With your incredible support, the Alliance Foundation Scholar Success Board exceeded its goal and raised over $206,000 (and counting) for the Alliance Gayle Miller Leaders of Change Scholarship Fund, which will provide college scholarships to top Alliance graduates next spring.
Thank you—to all of our attendees and supporters—for your belief in the promise and college dreams of our Alliance scholars. A special thanks to our event co-chairs, host committee, and sponsors. You made this year’s Leaders of Change celebration our most successful ever.
