Thank you to Our Donors

Dear Supporters,

You are the reason why 10,000 Degrees is celebrating an amazing year. So today we celebrate you!

Because of you, this year we are serving more than 2,200 college students in more than 50 colleges. 

Because of your belief in our mission, we are able to show all students we believe in them. Every 10,000 Degrees student comes from a low-income background. Over 80% of our four-year college students graduate, compared to 31% of their peers. Our community college students transfer to and graduate from four-year colleges at three times the national average. And they graduate with 85% less student loan debt than their peers. 

All of this is because of you!

Thank you for being ONE DEGREE of Change! 

Kim Mazzuca
President & CEO 

Toby Mumford
Chair, Board of Directors
