City Year’s Circle of Champions | Strategic Partners Committed to Student Success

*Circle of Champion members as of 11/23/2022

We created our Circle of Champions to support our strategic Five-Year Pandemic Recovery plan. Our Champion members pledge between $2,500 – $100,000 annually for five years. Circle members receive annual event sponsorships, a logo or name on our Circle of Champions webpage, additional media mentions, special event invitations, and distinctive name badges. We send regular updates to Champions regarding our progress toward goals. Champions can choose which events they want to sponsor with their pledge and make annual investment decisions. Our Champions are strategic investors committed to lasting student success!

These Circle members are strategic investors who have chosen to invest in our Five-Year Pandemic Recovery Plan, created in June of 2022. This plan outlines key activities and strategic partnerships to help students get back on track post-pandemic. It also defines annual goals for each of the five years to ensure that students exceed pre-pandemic academic outcomes by the end of the 2026 -2027 academic year.

A special thank you to our inaugural members of the Circle of Champions, Gayle and Walter Embrey, Joanne Furtek Cox, Bonnie Reed and Stu Schlossberg, and Marty and Rene Wender for your foresight and commitment to educational equity and creation of workplace pathways in San Antonio!

Students first. Collaboration Always.

Thank you,

Abigale James Van Haselen
