Education Equality



The latest report commissioned by the Marin Community Foundation stated that Marin had the second-highest level of income inequality of any California county. Here are a few groups looking to bridge that gap.

10,000 DEGREES
This organization is dedicated to helping high school juniors and seniors from low-income backgrounds get to and through college. The San Rafael–based nonprofit focuses on instilling a college-going mindset early on and offers support like college road map workshops, financial aid management, year-round mentoring and local campus tours.
