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

GABRIELA SMITH

The 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:

First Generation College Success Achievement for All Students

We proudly support innovative programs both enrolling scholarship students and providing them with the dedicated support needed to help them flourish throughout their college experience and graduate. While on average graduation rates are 30% nationally for first-generation students, the graduation rates for those with a supportive network rises to 97%.
