For over twenty-five years, Bottom Line has been fighting for educational equity by ensuring that the right to a quality college education is accessible to the many, not just the few. Our vision is to create a far-reaching ripple effect, launched by the transformative power of a college degree and a mobilizing first career. For degree-aspiring students from first-generation and low-income backgrounds, Bottom Line is a relentless ally who partners with them to get in, graduate, and go far. 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:

Provide an Auction Item

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

Double the Impact of your Donation with a Corporate Match

Corporate matching gift programs are charitable giving programs set up by corporations in which the company matches donations made by employees to eligible nonprofit organizations. Thousands of companies offer these matching gift programs. Click here to immediately assess your eligibility and gain access to an employer's corporate giving policies.
