IGNITE DAVIE, A College Promise Program for Davie County residents, will hold its community kickoff
during halftime of the Davie High School football game this Friday.

Friday, September 27th is also Davie Community Foundation Touchdowns for Education night. This year,
Touchdowns for Education will support IGNITE DAVIE! Thirty-five Touchdown for Education Team
Members will each add $100 to IGNITE DAVIE every time a touchdown is scored by Davie High against
A.L. Brown.

Individuals, organizations, and local governments have already committed $1,174,000 of the $3 Million
needed to endow the program. Zach Wright, a very generous contributor, is pictured with potential
beneficiaries of IGNITE DAVIE both from the Class of 2020 and many years in the future.

“This is a chance for all to seize an educational opportunity that can empower and propel themselves,
their families and even their future generations forward into the 21st Century economy!” said Wright.
IGNITE DAVIE is a last dollar scholarship to pay tuition and fees to DCCC for residents of Davie County
beginning with the Class of 2020! IGNITE DAVIE puts Education at the very center of our community and
Davie County students will have the opportunity to continue their education beyond high school
graduation, without incurring substantial student loan debt!

Donations of all amounts are needed to secure IGNITE DAVIE for future generations. Donations may be
made in several ways:
