Over six weeks ago, when COVID-19 prompted us to reimagine our in-person gala into a virtual celebration, never could we have imagined the tremendous outpouring of love and generosity you showed our students last Saturday night.
 
Hundreds of you joined by Zoom from near and far to raise a virtual toast and paddle in honor of our students. Because of YOU, we met our fundraising goal – a tremendous feat given current events! We extend our deepest gratitude to YOU – our sponsors and donors.
While we celebrate this moment, we know that our job is far from over. The demand for our student support has increased exponentially in the past few weeks.
 
For that reason, we have decided to extend our ONE Amazing Community fundraiser through May and increase our goal to $750,000.
 
As our students from low-income backgrounds face daily surmounting obstacles to their college education, your generous donation will enable us to meet this escalating need to help our students who need it the most.
 
You can make an immediate and positive impact on our students and support the work we are doing right now:
  • Helping our students with Fall contingency plans should schools decide to continue distance learning.
  • Advocating for our students at the local and national level.
  • Expediting financial aid to the most vulnerable students. 
  • Rapidly creating how-to videos, virtual workshops, and other resources to minimize any disruption to our students’ college journey.
  • And so much more. 
 
At 10,000 Degrees, we are staying positive, strong, and together. But our students need us now more than ever. This crisis is disproportionately impacting our students and those inequities are only bound to increase without taking action. 
 

Thank you for being part of our ONE amazing community!
