Program Description

uAspire is a nonprofit organization ensuring that all young people have the financial information and resources necessary to find an affordable path to and through college.

Our singular focus is on college affordability and removing financial barriers so that every student has an equitable opportunity to graduate from college and succeed in life.

We work in partner schools and nonprofits - within BUILD, Envision Education, and San Francisco Unified School District - for whom at least 60 percent, and as many as 94 percent, of students are identified as low-income.
