An ADHD Student Needs Your Help

A note from Edge Foundation founder, Neil Peterson.

Five years ago, I had a conversation with my daughter, Kelsey, who shared with me her pride in her academic turnaround due to working with her ADHD coach.  She dreamed of sharing her experience with other students. Since that time the ideas we discussed have grown into a thriving foundation that pioneers effective, new approaches empowering students with ADHD to succeed.

ADHD coaching empowers student success
ADHD can be challenging, and while students with ADHD have the intellectual capacity for success,  they are four times more likely to drop out of high school and only 5% will finish college.  Bright young people are being lost because not enough of them are getting the help they need.
This holiday season, you can help Kelsey’s dream reach more students by contributing to the Edge Foundation. Earlier this month we received a challenge grant providing matching funds for contributions raised. It doubles the impact of your contribution.
  • Each contribution of $50 will help ensure new students with ADHD will benefit from this scientifically-provenintervention.
  • Your contribution of $100 will help ensure that Edge can continue to provide coaching in previously under-performing, low-income schools.
  • A gift of $250 goes a long way to providing a coaching scholarship for a student with ADHD.

By donating here, you join me in supporting the momentum of Kelsey’s dream, bring coaching to more students and help us meet the challenges of the year ahead.

On behalf of our staff, board of directors and each of the students whose lives we impact on a daily basis, I want to thank you for your generosity and wish you a happy holiday and a prosperous New Year.

Sincerely,

Neil Peterson
Founder and CEO
