HOW CAN I HELP?
An investment that keeps giving. For every $1.00 spent on the SRA program, over $4.00 is returned as direct fiscal benefits represented by increases in federal and state tax receipts (and reductions in federal and state benefits) over the lifetime of SRA students as compared to other low-income, first-generation college students entering four-year colleges1.
