How Student Sponsorships Work

Beyond Now Foundation's PushBack Enrichment Program supports rural students in overlooked communities through delivery of a comprehensive enrichment model that brings together experts in the Arts, Athletics, Health & Wellness, and Law Enforcement arenas for complimentary collaborations with South Carolina State University, Duke University, and the University of South Carolina Athletics program.  As a sponsor, your gift enables us to offer the PushBack Enrichment Program at no cost to student participants, for life-changing connections that foster holistic development. 

 

Beyond Now Foundation partners with the sponsored school, identifying schools and communities most overlooked and in need of support.  Our goal is to advance equity and diversity in early childhood education, and to provide EVERY student with the transformational support needed to reach their full potential.

You'll get to witness your support in action as Beyond Now shares the story of your impact with our global community through videos, photos, and testimonials.

Your gift and encouragement will let your sponsored student know that they're on the right track.  Throughout the academic year, you'll celebrate as an extension of their community as we highlight their hard-work, successes, and accomplishments.

Why Sponsor a Student Through

Beyond Now Foundation?

Sponsoring a student through Beyond Now Foundation is particularly special because our PushBack Program is compassion-based and designed to advance equity and diversity in early childhood education.  Our services also provide community-based outreach for rural and underserved families and schools. In partnership with sponsored students and schools, we encourage a love of learning, inspire compassionate communities, and advocate for innovative pathways that equip rural students with "REAL" opportunities for long-term success.    

 

Neka Alston, Founder of Beyond Now Foundation, was raised in the rural town of Estill, SC and attended Estill Elementary, the sponsored school.  Neka has experienced first-hand, the barriers faced by students and community members in the area. With this understanding, Beyond Now Foundation has designed the PushBack Enrichment Program to address the unique needs of the largely overlooked minority and low-income students in rural Estill, South Carolina.  

Sponsorship donations  will provide students  the support needed to build resilience in new and innovative ways.
