Celebrating 40 years of college graduates!


THANK YOU for your unwavering support throughout our 40 years, but especially, over the last 20 months.

“Students deserve the chance to work hard, pursue their education, and build a career. Organizations like yours are vital to that mission. Congratulations, 10,000 Degrees on 40 years of changing lives and building our future, ONE DEGREE at a time.”

-Dr. Jill Biden

Our Impact and Success

If you believe in the power of education, 10,000 Degrees is one of the best investments you can make. A college degree breaks the cycle of poverty for generations to come.

Now serving students in eight San Francisco Bay Area counties, we are working every day to reach more students with our proven programs.

Our Vision

We envision a world where all students, regardless of race, ethnicity, or socioeconomic background will have the full range of educational opportunities, support, and resources to realize their full potential.

“10,000 Degrees has supported and guided me throughout my entire college career! Without them, I would not have made it this far to pursue my bachelor’s degree in Sociology at UC Berkeley! They continuously come through for me with academic, financial, and personal guidance and I cannot thank them enough! I am ONE DEGREE!”
