Exciting news! Ralph Lauren has announced the winners of their inaugural Match Rugby grant, and--as you may have guessed from this picture of incredibly fashionable people looking at an incredibly gorgeous website--they've selected The Generation Project as the winner of their $25,000 top prize!
Visit the Rugby blog to learn more about the competition, the other amazing finalists, and to read some quotes from us about what this prize means to The Generation Project. But quite honestly, words cannot express our tremendous gratitude for all those of you who supported us throughout this competition, and for those of you who continue to support us in our mission to expand opportunities for low-income students. We are humbled and honored by the steady stream of donations, encouragement, and ideas that people from around the country have provided us as we've worked to get The Generation Project off the ground. An incredibly special thank you goes out to Ralph Lauren Rugby and the Teach For America Social Entrepreneurship Initiative for creating this amazing grant competition and for believing in the visions of young philanthropists.
This grant will help us implement the creative visions of many more donors and expand the range of opportunities for thousands of students. The community section of our website will be live very shortly--if you want us to quantify that in seconds, well, we can engage your neurosis--so check back often for exciting updates leading up to the launch!
THANKS AGAIN FROM THE GENERATION PROJECT!
