what is CORE?

CORE is about helping students succeed who otherwise would get left behind.

At CORE, we believe the most powerful way to ensure economic mobility and equity is to invest in children and their families over a long-term period of time and with a holistic approach. We’re building an infrastructure for success to ensure that historically-underserved students can pursue choice-filled lives. We see it work, year after year, with 100% graduation rates.

“I donate to Core because I can see where my donation goes and how it supports the children and families that are part of this incredible model. Core is the only non-profit that I have found that looks at every aspect of a child and their families and is willing to put in the work to ensure that the cycle of poverty is broken. I know that the money I give will go towards the mission of Core and will change lives for the better.”
