Building Community and Equity through Scholarship

Saludos! Chicana/Latino students make up only 14% of undergraduates at UC Berkeley, which is nowhere near the 38% of Chicana/Latino representation in California. As tuition continues to increase across the University of California system, higher education is becoming more inaccessible to our Chicana/Latino students. Our goal is to raise funds to recruit, retain, and get our students to walk the graduation stage by supporting them through scholarships. Your support will have a meaningful impact in our mission to build community and equity through scholarships for the larger Chicana/Latino community!Go Osxs! Go Bears! Read More

My Pastoral Preparation

!Esta es mi pasión! Este es mi propósito! Con tan solo 27 años de edad, nacido el 05 de Junio del 1989, a las 10pm, en la ciudad de La Vega, República Dominicana, he encontrado el propósito para el cual Dios me ha creado: Pastorear su Grey, y Desarrollar su Iglesia. Mi primera experiencia en el altar fue a los 7años de edad y desde ese dia que predique por no más de 20 minutos, mi vida quedo ligado al corazón del padre y a la visión de "Hacer Iglesia". Mis Padres pastores principales, me inspiraron y apoyaron para hacer de este primera practica mi vida. En el año 2009, el Señor me llamo a cambiar de carrera profesional, y pase de estudiante de Medicina a estudiante de Psicologia General, con el fin de poder servirle al Rey de Reyes. Justo en ese tiempo, mi padre, experimenta su primer ataque al corazón, y por más de 24 meses quede a cargo de la congregación junto con todo el equipo de la Iglesia. Fueron meses de avivamiento, de gracia y de favor, y cuando realmente encontre propósito al hacer ministerio. Al pasar 3 años como Pastor adjunto con mi padre, me en el 2011, fui Ordenado por mi Iglesia general, con sede en Miami, y a partir de la fecha han pasado casi 6 años de servicio a la comunidad y la congregacion. Hoy por hoy tenemos 2 misiones en extensión y 4 nuevos proyectos de misiones concebiendose, de los cuales soy cabeza y presido junto a mis padres. Por el aviviamiento que se viene venir, y el favor que Dios ha puesto sobre nuestro corazón para hacer ministerio, NECESITO PREPARARME! Aportar a esta causa me impulsará hacer ministerio, y asegurar que a mis 30 años ya estare con fuerza, animo, visión para consolidar el proyecto de Dios para la humanidad, brindar salvacion, gracia y perdon! Este aporte es para el primer Semestre, para el segundo espero contar con Becas encontradas, pero que apoyes mi corazón y mi causa, se que traducira en una Bendicion concreta para todo el mundo! No solo para La Vega, no solo para Boston, no solo para Miami, no solo para mexico, honduras, peru, y donde quiera que tenemos misiones, sino para todos aquellos otros lugares que alcanzaremos por Su gracia y favor. Gracias por apoyar mis sueños y hacerlos Realidad! Read More

Enter Your Details

The details are the foundation of your campaign. Determine how much money you need to raise for your education campaign and by what date. Leave enough time for people to learn about the reasons you need help with your education costs and to donate, but not so much time that they forget. Come up with a compelling title that is specific to tuition needs (you can always go back and edit this later). A good title is actionable and gives visitors an idea of why you are raising money. The title introduces visitors to your campaign so explain why your cause is important and give people a reason to learn more.

Tell Your Story

Write a description for your personal situation that tells potential donors why you are raising money and how you will use the funds. Share what you are studying and why. Be honest and genuine about your campaign and why it is important to raise money. If you have specific challenges share those. The more details you can give visitors about your individual education costs, what you plan to do after you graduate, and why you are having trouble meeting the expenses, the more personal and authentic a campaign becomes. When that happens, people begin to feel connected to a cause and are much more likely to donate.
