Minds Matter Detroit: 2020 Year End Pledge Description

December 1st – December 31st, 2020

Minds Matter connects driven and determined students from low-income families with the peoplepreparation, and possibilities to succeed in college, create their future, and change the world.

Minds Matter believes in the power of a college education as the driver for success.

Since 1991, 100% of Minds Matter students have been accepted to a 4-year college or university. Even more impressive, the Class of 2020, on average, had 85% of their tuition needs met. Graduating with little-to-no debt makes an extraordinary difference.

Support Minds Matter so we can continue reaching more students across Detroit!
