9 December 2016: Support the Detroit College Promise

Thanks for your support of The Detroit College Promise, the charity we sponsor.  At this time of year, we are asking for your help to strengthen public education in Detroit by making a charitable contribution to support The Detroit College Promise.  To donate, click here.

Last year, the Detroit College Promise merged with the Detroit Public School Foundation to have a greater impact on improving public education in Detroit.  All donations go into a special account for our program.  I am a member of the DPS Foundation Board, and because of my belief in the importance of this program, recently made a contribution of $5,000.

This past summer, we awarded 47 students over $25,000 in funds.  New to the program, we are assigning a coach to each recipient for one year to offer mentoring and guidance during what sometimes proves to be a difficult transition. 

With your support (click here), we can continue to encourage Detroit students to be the best they can be.

Thanks in advance for your generosity.  

- Nat

Nat Pernick, M.D.
Founder, The Detroit College Promise

P.S.  We will list all pathologist / pathology related donors in our website news email, but please send me a short email that you have made a contribution, so we don't miss anyone.
