“Education transforms lives, builds futures, strengthens communities, and drives progress and innovation. Education is at the heart of what we do.”

GABRIELA SMITH

Crimsonbridge Foundation, Founder and President

We believe that improving educational access, outcomes, and graduation rates for all students is a national priority to build a strong, bright future for our country. This conviction inspires our work and commitment to providing youth with an excellent education and pathway to success. We build partnerships to help improve the quality of educational programs, working with nationally recognized organizations to increase their impact. Our work includes:

College Success for All Students

We invest in innovative programs that not only get students to college, but also provide them with the support they need to flourish and graduate. While the national graduation rate for first generation students is 30%, our partner organizations show that it is possible to increase graduation rates for all students.
