You can change a woman’s life.

When you give to Fresh Start, you help women with scholarship, mentorship, and a path to a brighter future.

Every person has potential. There are women in Delaware right now, who are hard-working, caring, important members of their community—and who are just short of having the ability to pay for higher education.

They may have families. They may have children. They may have had a setback in their past. But they also have the willpower to change and grow.

Higher education welcomes greater opportunity. A college degree is a milestone. And your contributions toward a woman's educational future lifts a burden from her shoulders. It fosters change and hope, and strengthens our greater community. Your generosity fuels our mission, with 92 cents of every dollar going directly toward the scholarship. This takes the burden off our scholars who are completing their education.

To those who feel good about seeing others flourish; Together, we can help women with a dream of attaining higher education. It’s a new page in their book. A blank canvas in their story. A clean, fresh start. We invite to make a tax-deductible donation today

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your contribution toward my education will eliminate my financial worries so that I can truly focus on my studies.”
