Bottom Line was founded to help low-income and first-generation students graduate from college by providing one-on-one mentoring and support. We have spent the last 20 years taking that simple but extremely effective idea and building on it, expanding it, and improving it. Please consider donating to Bottom Line and providing us with the means to keep our programs strong and growing.

Here are just a few ways that you can support our students:

Sponsor a Student

By sponsoring a student, you can make a direct investment in your student's life and future. Armed with a college degree, our graduates obtain higher paying jobs, build fulfilling careers, care for their families, and revitalize their communities.

A one-year sponsorship at $1,500 can provide a full year of Bottom Line's services to help ensure that a student persists in college and ultimately graduates. You can help provide Bottom Line's support for up to six years (a student's entire college career) wtih a $6,000 sponsorship. Sponsor a student>>

Provide an Auction Item

We hold auctions each year at our major fundraising events in Boston, New York, Worcester and Chicago. Let us know if you are interested in donating an auction for any upcoming event.

Double the Impact of your Donation with a Corporate Match
