Minds Matter Annual Gala

TBA - Minds Matter Annual Gala
Chicago, IL
OUR STORY At Minds Matter, we believe that high-potential students, who are dedicated to earning a college education, should be given every possible opportunity to achieve their dreams. We equip our low-income students with the tools to gain acceptance at four-year colleges and universities. This includes assistance to successfully navigate the financial aid process. WHY MINDS MATTER? You might assume that accomplished students who work hard will move forward - easily - toward a college degree. Unfortunately the facts tell a different story: The Challenge: Low-income, high-achieving students are underrepresented at competitive colleges. Only 3% of students at the nation’s most competitive schools are from a low-income background. Not too long ago, the U.S. high school graduation rate hit 82%. However, the national average for low-income students was just 74.6% in the same period. That rate was even lower for economically disadvantaged students in the Chicago Public School system at just 67.1%. Only about 20% of college students from the lowest income bracket completed a bachelor’s degree by age 24 compared with 99% of students in the highest income bracket, that same year. College graduates earn a staggering 84% more than high school graduates. Without appropriate college preparation and access, low income students will not earn a college degree, perpetuating the cycle of poverty.
