What We Do

Daniel Trust Foundation is an award-winning nonprofit organization that supports young people in the United States and Rwanda through various educational programs and digital campaigns.

 

In the United States, the Foundation supports low-income students and their teachers through its high school mentoring, college scholarship and teacher recognition programs.

 

In Rwanda, the Foundation supports talented young people through various digital campaigns focusing on higher education, youth entrepreneurship and entertainment.

How We Do It

How We Do It

High School Mentoring

Program

The Daniel Trust Foundation High School Mentoring Program is a youth development and academic program for students in Bridgeport, CT and New York, NY. Enrolled students participate in weekly classes for 15 weeks in their junior year focusing on SAT prep, College Readiness, Career Preparation and Financial Literacy. 

College Scholarship 

Program

Once students graduate from our high school mentoring program, they receive a $2,000 scholarship ($500 per year for 4 years) to help them pay for their college textbooks and other related college expenses. The Daniel Trust Foundation Scholarship, while significant, only covers 42% of the student's needs. We wish we could do more. 

Teacher Recognition 

Program

One of the things that makes Daniel Trust Foundation unique is that we ask our scholarship recipients to nominate and honor teachers who have made a big impact in their lives. Teachers who are nominated by our students receive an achievement award and a $250 honorarium to help them supplement out of pocket expenses.
