Special thanks to our currently featured Leadership Partners for their incredible support to move the needle on our region’s community college success rates.

JPMorgan Chase recently announced a 2-year $400,000 investment to launch the One Million Degrees program at Malcolm X College. This leadership support will provide top-quality innovative supports to hundreds more community college students who are preparing for careers in our region's high-demand industries, including healthcare.

Caerus' generous matching grant of  up to $750,000 gives us the opportunity to raise $1.5 million in funding toward our goal of serving 1,000 scholars by 2018.

Many thanks to GCM Grosvenor for pledging their consistent support of our innovative programming to ensure the success of our scholars.
