LGR 002 Often, McElroy Films is approached by non-profits looking for a video solution to help their fundraising efforts. In 2013, Let’s Get Ready, a non-profit with locations around New England and beyond, was looking to update their branding in time for their annual fundraising gala. We were able to work within their budget to create a video that describes the mission and successes of the programs. Let’s Get Ready helps kids who might not have the means to continue their education to get into college by helping them study for standardized tests like the PSAT and SAT as well as help them apply for scholarships and financial aid. The programs are broken into sessions that meet up to twice a week for a few hours and are taught completely by collegiate volunteers including many Let’s Get Ready alumni. Every year, the programs help over 3000 kids and raise SAT scores by about 110 points. Most rewarding is the knowledge that 92% of Let’s Get Ready students go directly to college.
