Note on COVID-19:

With classes, athletics, and college prep activities abruptly canceled, SA staff have stepped up to provide interactive support through virtual 1-on-1 and group mentorship. We are focusing on efforts that will curb academic loss, keep young people active, and help them stay on track. Your support helps thousands of young people who need Scholar Athletes’ programming now more than ever.

Scholar Athletes continues to closely monitor COVID-19 developments and follow recommendations of the CDC and Massachusetts Department of Public Health. In response to the pandemic, we have chosen to make the June 23rd event a virtual gala and all sponsorships are 100% tax deductible. Scholar Athletes counts on this annual gala as a significant source of income, and the loss of this funding would be challenging. Your generous investment in the thousands of youth we serve is life-changing and we intend to honor that investment. We deeply appreciate your kindness and understanding during this challenging time.
