Appleton ABC is an approved 501(c)(3) charitable organization. When you donate to ABC, you can be assured that 100% of your contribution will have a direct impact on the students we serve. We depend on donations from individuals and businesses in the community to keep our doors open.

Money goes toward:

  • Pay for our house staff – Resident Director, Cook, and tutors from Lawrence University.
  • Groceries and other household supplies – paper towel, cleaning supplies, bath tissue and toiletries.
  • School supplies – pens, pencils, notebooks, folders, flash drives, poster boards, etc.
  • Select testing fees – College entrance exams (ACT and/or SAT), AP exams.
  • Operational costs – rent, cable, internet, utilities.

Money does NOT go toward:

  • Board Member salaries – our board is made of volunteers who will never collect payment for their work with the program.
  • Membership fees – although A Better Chance is a national organization, each chapter runs independently and does not require payment for national support. All funds donated to Appleton stay in Appleton.
  • Outside organizations/sponsors – we manage all of our own finances and fundraising efforts, so contributions made online or through the mail go entirely to the program.
