A creative way to gather funds for college is to start fundraising. Many students have used fundraising portfolios to find donors (friends, family, and community members) that are willing to donate money to help the student. These portfolios should consist of a cover letter, letter of admission, transcript, résumé, and letter of recommendation.

Use social media sites like Green Note to start earning money for college. This site provides students with the opportunity to set a page up about them and give possible donors the chance to support them. Set a page up for yourself and let the community know it is there!
