Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday, a global giving movement to encourage social good after Black Friday and Cyber Monday, is just 1 week away. We hope you’ll participate by giving the gift of college! Every donation, whether it’s $25 or $250, directly impacts our students and makes college possible.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank You, Volunteers!

With the UC application deadline quickly approaching at the end of this month, our SF and LA college centers have been overflowing with students hustling to hit the “Submit” button on their applications.

Our volunteers have truly stepped up to meet the needs of every student seeking college application support by staying until closing, coming in for multiple volunteer shifts, and even buying dinner for students staying late. We can’t say thank you enough to our volunteers for putting in the time, effort, and care to support our students.

Community Awards

With 2019 coming to a close, we recently hosted our Community Awards celebration to recognize and show gratitude to our superstar ScholarMatch supporters from this year! Our awardees ranged from a beloved Mission High School teacher armed with a mission to send every single one of his students to college, to the friendliest and most kind UPS postman to have ever graced San Francisco.
