Corporate and Foundation Partners
A Better Chance is eager to partner with corporations and foundations that align with our focus to help students of color achieve their full potential through access to high quality educational opportunities, and that want to join our critical work in building a pipeline of diverse leaders.
A Better Chance already partners with many of America’s leading corporations and foundations – and we are grateful for their participation and support! We could not do our work, drive the impact that we have, and build a network of over 16,000 Alumni without our valued partners. These partners (partial list below) understand that education is truly the great equalizer, and that organizations can’t fully thrive and grow without an inclusive workforce and leadership team that includes people of different backgrounds and perspectives.
Our model is to build mutually beneficial partnerships – understanding each partner’s specific goals and strategies and how their time, talents, and resources can be best woven into A Better Chance to fulfill our mission.
