The cost of an Education

Posted in Those that need help tagged , , , at 3:49 pm by Every Cent Counts

These days the high cost of education, makes obtaining a degree higher than a High School diploma, a major decision. Some question whether spending the money on higher education is actually worth it, or is it better to just jump into the workforce right away.

Statistics show that the vast majority of high school graduates can expect to earn $1.2 million during their lifetime, while those with a bachelor’s degree can expect to earn $2.1 million. The higher the education the more money you can expect to earn overall.

In an economy such as ours having that next bit of education, can mean the difference between making ends meet, and not being able to provide your family with the basic necessities. This is doubly important if you are a single parent.

Many of our Every Cent Counts clients are single parents, that are trying to stay afloat during tough financial times, which are impacting everyone. They would love to be in a financial situation that didn’t require them to ask others for help, but they find themselves in need of a step up. Some of our clients are hopeful that with your donations, they will be able to further their education, so they won’t have to ask for handouts any longer and one day they too will be able to give to those less fortunate.

Please visit www.everycentcounts.org to see our clients, all of which have been vetted to make sure their needs are real. Donate to those who you choose to help, and remember every penny you donate will benefit the client of your choosing.
