Playing to Win with eduPOINT$ and The Brain Fund
Little League baseball and other organized sports organizations help children acquire important socialization and cooperation skills that can carry on to later life. As a coach or manager, you can have an even greater impact on the future of your players by promoting the programs of The Brain Fund to help families manage the costs of college education in a proactive way. Our unique initiatives are designed to provide practical assistance to combat the serious issue of excessive student loan debt in the U.S. We offer the innovative eduPOINT$ program to provide real material support for parents and students starting from birth and continuing through college graduation.
A Growing Problem in the U.S.
The latest figures on student loan debt estimate the total amount owed throughout the U.S. at over $1.2 trillion. The average student is responsible for $30,000 worth of debt upon graduation from college. This can cripple their economic prospects and leave them at a disadvantage throughout their later careers. Encouraging parents to join with The Brain Fund can help them begin accumulating the funds necessary to put their children through college debt free. By supporting our mission through fundraisers and informational meetings, you can do your part to make debt-free higher education a reality for the athletes on your team.
Earning Funding through eduPOINT$
The eduPOINT$ program allows family members and friends to earn points toward college funding for their chosen student by purchasing products and services from companies that partner with The Brain Fund. The eduPOINT$ earned by these participants can be redeemed for up to $1,000 each year for the student. With multiple consumers supporting a single student, this can quickly add up to a significant sum of money that can be used to cover college expenses at any accredited institution of higher learning.
By acting as an ambassador for The Brain Fund, you can help the members of your team prepare themselves financially for college and can do your part to combat the overwhelming burden of student loan debt currently creating a drain on the U.S. economy and on the futures of the children you coach.
Endorsement of a common agenda platform by the below organizations reflects support for the critically urgent need to address core social ills and the plethora of underlying interconnected and interrelated ones, but is not necessarily an endorsement of The Brain Fund’s “Action Plan”, The Peoples’ Empowerment Project (TPEP) in its entirety.
