Syracuse, New York, December 2, 2021 – KS&R recently provided a generous donation of $25,000 to On Point for College as part of its annual contribution to a local nonprofit organization. On Point for College is a nationally recognized college attainment program founded in 1999 to help first-generation students gain access to college. It subsequently expanded its offerings to include college success and completion support, career planning and placement support, and most recently, support with non-college post-secondary credential attainment. On Point serves all of Central New York, including Cayuga, Herkimer, Madison, Oneida, Onondaga, Cortland, and Oswego Counties.
“We are inspired by the work being done by On Point for College. They serve as a vital safety net to ensure first generation college students have the resources to create a new trajectory for themselves and their families. KS&R is proud to play a small role in that effort,” said Jay Scott, Chairman, KS&R.
Each year, KS&R contributes a portion of its annual profits to a deserving nonprofit organization to enhance their mission and support the local community. The $25,000 gift to On Point helps the organization offer its services for free and available to students of all ages, backgrounds, and educational levels. On Point specializes in helping high school students and recent graduates, as well as those who have been away from school or who earned GED or HSE credentials. On Point also has extensive experience working with populations who may face additional challenges including, but not limited to, refugee or immigrant status, dependent children, experience with the foster care system, a history of court involvement, and housing insecurity.
