Travis Credit Union Match Raises $40K for 10,000 Degrees!

Thanks to the Travis Credit Union, 10,000 Degrees raised a total of $40,000 to support our college students from low-income backgrounds in Contra Costa, Napa and Sonoma. We are grateful to 10,000 Degrees donors who participated in the Travis Credit Union Foundation’s COVID-19 Relief Initiative. Every dollar was matched up to $20,000! Thank you to our generous donors who participated in this opportunity and allowed us to make an even bigger impact in the community and help even more students reach their goal of earning a college degree! 

“Travis Credit Union, we are so appreciative of your support for 10,000 Degrees. Thank you for offering the generous dollar for dollar match to our donors. Your inspiration resulted in an overwhelmingly enthusiastic response from our supporters who were thrilled to have their donations go even further.”

— Sandy Donnell, 10000 Degrees Board Chair
