College Goal Sunday is an initiative provided locally by the College Access Alliance of Bridgeport with support from United Way of Coastal Fairfield County. United Way thanks Citi's CollegePath program for working to help lower-income families achieve access to college for their children.
College Goal Sunday is funded and sponsored by Lumina Foundation for Education, the CT Association of Professional Financial Aid Administrators (CAPFAA), the CT Association of Educational Opportunity Programs (CAEOP), and the YMCAs of Connecticut. College Goal Sunday is a valuable opportunity to get tips on planning for college and personal advice on ways to make attending college more affordable. The College Goal Sunday program was first created by the Indiana Student Financial Aid Association with funding from Lilly Endowment, Inc., and with supplemental support from Lumina Foundation for Education.
