At Beyond the Boroughs, every gift, of any size, of any kind, counts.
By offsetting the cost of college tuition, Beyond the Boroughs helps young achievers take care of the many other expenses required to thrive in school. There is no doubt that college is the key to a higher quality of life and is instrumental to the prosperity of our society as a whole.
It is an unfortunate fact that the combination of hard work and a bright mind does not guarantee success. Success, no matter how one quantifies it, is inextricably bound to higher learning, and economic hardship and skyrocketing tuition costs make the dream of upward social mobility achieved through a degree impossible for millions of capable young people. Tutan Reyes created Beyond the Boroughs so that these driven minds can afford to take this first step toward professional achievement. Beyond the Boroughs is a nonprofit organization that gets to help students on their way to a brighter future.
