Who We Are

Board & Staff

Our board is passionate about helping low-income students acquire the tools they need to succeed at their educational institution. Each of our board members is unique in their career path and their story, but we have come together to raise awareness about this inequality in our education systems and to make a positive change. We believe whole-heartedly in the cause and want to help as many students as we can.
