– SUPPORT OUR STUDENTS – – GET INVOLVED – – STAY INFORMED –

Since 2012, Horizons for Youth has been the primary beneficiary of the Declan Drumm Sullivan Memorial Fund and its signature fundraiser, No Ordinary Evening. Each year, the support of The Fund and No Ordinary Evening’s guests fully fund the participation of a group of elementary and high school students, Declan’s Class, in Horizons for Youth’s comprehensive suite of wraparound services and tuition scholarships.

The Declan Drumm Sullivan Memorial Fund has been instrumental in helping Horizons for Youth grow to serve 250 students.
 

In the inaugural year of this partnership, No Ordinary Evening and the Fund were able to fully fund the cost of 40 students to take part in Horizons for Youth’s programs. This group of 40 students was the start of Declan’s Class.

Through the support of The Fund and the guests of No Ordinary Evening, Horizons for Youth has added 96 students to its programs. These students benefit from scholarship, mentoring, and enrichment programs from kindergarten through high school, with continued academic and socio-emotional support through college.
