Since 1997, Bottom Line has addressed the low college graduation rates of low-income and first-generation students. Their organization was founded on the belief that students need a mentor and a guide during the college application process and throughout college to succeed. By providing consistent one-on-one support, Bottom Line has helped thousands of low-income and first-generation students stay in college and complete their degrees.
Bottom Line is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is nearly 100% privately funded. They currently serve over 7,000 students through their two primary programs - College Access and College Success.
Bottom Line services are available from regional offices located in Boston, Chicago, New York City, and Worcester.
Mission & Vision
Bottom Line's mission is to help low income, first generation students get into college, graduate from college, and go far in life. Their vision is to dramatically transform urban communities by producing thousands of new career-ready college graduates.
