Let’s talk about

Opportunity

Who opened a door of opportunity for you? Where would you be without it?

Since college provides opportunities for better lifelong wages, better health, a more engaged civic life, and longer lives, our focus is on college completion.

But the odds of getting the chance to go to college are stacked in favor for some and against others.

Join us for One Amazing Night

on Saturday April 29, 2017

An Annual Gala to benefit the
students of 10,000 Degrees®

Annual Report

Our 2016 Progress Report is now available. Together we’re changing the world, one degree at a time. Thank you to all who support our work!

Let's talk about

Opportunity Gap

If we do nothing, some will be left behind, and so will our state.

Only 3 in 10 students from low-income households will earn a college degree.

Opportunity Gap

California is projected to be 1 million college graduates short by 2025.

We Guide.

Give students the support and advice they need to pursue their college dreams through our Mentor Program. A student somewhere nearby could use your guidance.

Solutions

10,000 Degrees has been attacking the opportunity gap on three fronts:

College Opportunity – Our Programs

Promoting Collective Impact

Alumni Leadership

We Act.

We are working to create educational equity for all students, regardless of their backgrounds. We have succeeded for 18,700 college graduates. Help us do more.

Let's talk about

Impact

10,000 Degrees college students are graduating at rates nearly 3x the national average of their low-income, first-to-college cohort.

What's more, they are each making history. First in their families to graduate college. First to vote. First member of their community to return as a teacher, lawyer, political activist, or 10,000 Degrees advisor!

We Believe.

Help put 10,000 more students from low-income households on the path to a college degree.
Get involved. Change the world.
