WE HELP MAKE COLLEGE DREAMS COME TRUE.

The San Francisco North Bay’s leading college success nonprofit, 10,000 Degrees® helps students from low-income backgrounds get to and through college. Thanks to comprehensive personal support, academic counseling, and financial aid management, 86% of 10,000 Degrees four-year college students earn bachelor’s degrees, compared to 31% nationally. As vital members of local communities, 10,000 Degrees college alumni are more likely to vote, more likely to volunteer, and earn over $1 million more in their lifetimes.
