making education affordable
Without a college degree, stable, well-paying jobs are much more difficult to find. This can keep families, and entire communities, trapped in a cycle of poverty.
A New Leaf’s Individual Development Account (IDA) is a matched savings program, matching each dollar a student saves. In partnership with MesaCAN, IDA allows participants to attend any of the ten Maricopa Community Colleges and matches every dollar up to $500 a participant saves with $8. This incentivizes students to save, while assisting them with the burden of saving enough to attend a community college.
For many students, this program is the only way in which a higher education is possible. It gives them a chance to improve their lives regardless of their circumstances. By investing in education for students in our community, A New Leaf is opening up new pathways to prosperity for individuals across the Valley.
