GEAR UP invites you to take a moment to support the program by contacting the White House and the House of Representatives to protect programs like GEAR UP against the fiscal cliff. This will protect future funding we plan on receiving through grants. Support can be given by:
1. Calling the White House at (202) 456-1111 or writing them online.
2. Contacting the House of Representatives- Find your Representative here.
3. Delivering this message:
“My name is [Jane/John Doe] and I'm the [Director/Counselor/Parent/Student/Partner, etc. of a GEAR UP program] at [School/University/Hometown/etc.]. As Congress and the White House work to resolve the fiscal cliff crisis, you must protect discretionary education programs like GEAR UP.”
Thank you for supporting our program and the impact we make on students’ lives!
