Bottom Line was founded in 1997 to help low income, first generation students get in to college, graduate from college, and go far in life. What started as an organization supporting 25 high school seniors in Boston has grown to support students throughout MA, NY, and IL.
Today, Bottom Line is a national nonprofit with offices in Boston, New York and Chicago that serves thousands of college students through its full-scale college retention program. Bottom Line's College Access Program provides one-on-one guidance and support to high school juniors and seniors throughout the college application process, and Bottom Line's College Success Program begins when students enroll in college. With Bottom Line's support, students across the country are earning college degrees, beginning successful careers, and transforming their communities.
