This year, we are excited to host our first-ever 100% virtual fundraiser! During this live-streamed event, we will meet members of the Minds Matter community, celebrate our accomplishments, and outline our vision for an even brighter future in the 2021 school year and beyond. As COVID-19 continues to impact Minds Matter's students academically and personally, our work is especially crucial this year, and we need your support now more than ever. We hope you'll join us for this special celebration of community and opportunity! To register now or decline with regrets, click the button below. Thank you in advance for your support!
The Minds Matter mission is to transform the lives of accomplished high school students from low-income families by broadening their dreams and preparing them for college success.
Through an intensive, volunteer-run tutoring and mentoring program, we enable our students to build their academic resumes and get into college. 100% of our graduates have been accepted into four-year colleges, and 95% of tracked alumni are enrolled in or have graduated from these universities, often with significant financial aid packages.
Minds Matter of Seattle is 100% volunteer-run. Your donation today will go directly towards funding our students' summer programs and supporting our weekend programming.
Minds Matter takes responsibility for creating a diverse and inclusive community. We believe that starts with engaging people at every level of the organization who reflect, celebrate, and affirm the multi-dimensional identities of our students. This allows all of us to broaden our thinking, deepen our understanding, and expand our views on what is possible.
