Ambassadors of Hope Scholarship Fund Fundraising Campaign

Pledge your support today!

What if you lived in one of the poorest and most dangerous cities in America?


But what if in your city there was a community where...

100% of the teens graduated from high school and 93% went onto college

Would that change the way you imagined your future?

We think so!

UrbanPromise is a community-based nonprofit located in Camden NJ that serves approximately 600 children and teens each year, fulfilling our mission through after-school programs, summer camps, two private schools, teen job training, and experiential learning.

Every one of our students benefits from our kindergarten-to-college pledge of academic, spiritual, and financial support.

The impact of our promise

There was no way that my twin sister and I would have both been able to afford to attend college, much less graduate on time from four year universities, if it had not been for the Ambassadors of Hope Scholarship. It got us to college and kept us there!

Ambassadors of Hope Scholarship Fund a unique scholarship program that helps college students bridge the financial gap that often exists for low income students when financial aid and scholarships fall short. Even with aid and tuition scholarships, many students struggle with the incidental costs that come from living away from home, managing the demands of college life, and participating fully in the experience.

Since 2010, the Ambassadors of Hope Scholarship Fund has awarded over 100 scholarship to a total of 55 students ranging in amounts from $57 for a textbook to $7,000 for a tuition shortfall.
