Organization Profile

Our mission is to make college possible for underserved youth by matching students with donors, resources, colleges, and professional networks. ScholarMatch is the only major nonprofit that combines a crowdfunded scholarship platform with game-changing college access and career support for low-income youth. Our typical student comes from a family earning less than $25,000 per year and attends a high school with just one counselor per 500-800 students. Our unique approach is fueled by community engagement and focused on what our students need most: hands-on help applying to college, financial assistance with tuition, and a support system throughout college.
