Invest in College Success

At Minds Matter Southern California, we believe college should be a beginning, creating the foundation for a better future. Yet most low-income students lack the resources, information, role models, and opportunities to realize their college dreams. Minds Matter Southern California fills this gap, and we want to do it for even more students!

Help us Achieve our $100,000 Goal

Give today because your donation will go even further because a generous board member is matching all donations up to $10,000 on Giving Tuesday.

Making Opportunities Accessible

We believe a student’s zip code should not limit their education or life opportunities. Every day, we listen, learn, and grow, celebrating our students’ voices and uniting behind their big dreams for their future.

We, like our students, are Dreaming Big about our future. We have set an ambitious growth plan to grow the number of students we serve by 20% over the next four years.

Together, with your support, we can make the opportunity accessible and actionable for more students like Irwin.
