“It was incredible to receive the Cacho Family Scholarship. It helped me purchase books, pay rent, and buy those everyday items you need, but don’t factor into your budget … I honestly can’t thank them enough.”

'18, Accounting

“I’m a first-generation college student … My parents didn’t have enough money to help pay for my education. So, to those who chose me to receive financial assistance through the Immokalee Fund, ‘I thank you for helping me achieve my dream of becoming a CPA and of becoming a better person in the future.’”
