SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why The Capistrano Dispatch is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
Kingston Technology made a $28,000 donation to Breakthrough San Juan Capistrano’s College Access and Completion Program, according to a press release.
“One out of every 10 first-generation students from a low-income background will graduate from college after six years, according to the Pew Research Institute,” the press release said. “Breakthrough San Juan Capistrano’s vision is to change that statistic and improve the odds for its students through its recent program expansion to guide them through college graduation.”
Breakthrough’s program provides monthly check-ins with students to address any concerns or questions related to financial aid, connectedness on campus, coursework, summer internships and their sense of well-being.
Kingston Technology’s gift will strengthen additional support and close resource gaps for students, the press release said.
