WELCOME TO GADGETS FOR FUTURE GRADUATES
“The Best Investment Is In Our Youth”
Happy New Year! 2023 got off to an emotional start. Whether or not you‘re a fan of the NFL, the Damar Hamlin incident on January 2nd is one that touched us all and brought the nation together for a moment. Such an incident removes all the minor mishaps from our busy minds & hearts and shines a light on what really matters: life itself! In an instant, praying on national television was acceptable and religious beliefs, race, and sexuality were of no significance. What mattered was that young, 24-year-old Damar Hamlin would overcome his injuries and be able to continue impacting a nation outside of a hospital room. In 5 days, the Chasing M’s Foundation went from a goal of $2,500 to raising well over $8 million dollars. It’s amazing what it takes for us as humans to appreciate the little things in “life”. Don’t sweat the small stuff because you never know when your time may be up.
Thanks again for all the continued support of our foundation. With your help we brightened 31 students’ Christmases. From socks to laptops, welding shirts to car jacks, chromebooks to cosmetic kits, these students couldn’t have been more thankful. We’d like to thank the staff at FCR, especially @Daniel Nebzydoski, for the tremendous help on another successful holiday Gadgets drive.
We look forward to sharing information on this year’s upcoming events in the near future.
Thank you, again, and Happy New Year!

At Gadgets for Future Graduates
we are driven by a single goal: assisting our middle school to high school aged students who do not have access to present day teenage necessities. We are raising funds and generating support in order to serve those students who need it most. We believe in filling the void that currently exists in donation programs for young adults. Please join us by supporting our journey to make a difference in the lives of our youth!
WHO WE ARE
Community, Alumni, Students, & Faculty
Gadgets for Future Graduates, above all else, is a community brought together by one common goal: to give our underprivileged youth the tools they need to succeed. As a non-profit charity our founders are driven by their passion for helping others and giving back to their community. Our supporters include local business owners, school alumni, faculty and students themselves.
WHAT WE DO
Making A Difference
Gadgets for Future Graduates is in the business of changing and shaping lives. The work we do at our Non-Profit Organization is aimed at providing a better school experience for our youth who come from financially disadvantaged families. With the money we raise, we purchase and donate the gadgets a student needs to further their education and build a foundation for their future career.
Reinforcing our Commitment
The Gadgets for Future Graduates team is committed to promoting opportunities for students in need and providing access to necessary resources. We find the best way to do so is to start on a small scale. Although we have plans for major expansion, our team is dedicated to making Gadgets for Future Graduates a success and there is no better place to start than at our own Alma Mater, Forest City Regional High School. Learn more about our work by getting in touch with our team today.
The Best Time of the Year
Although there is truly no limit to generosity, Gadgets for Future Graduates finds the Christmas season to be the most joyous part of the year and the best time to give back. For those students who may not otherwise have a Christmas, we are here to help. Our year-long fundraising efforts will be rewarded when we donate our gadgets at Christmas time.
