World-class advisors who empower education non-profits to overcome barriers to sustainability and growth

Who we are

EdAccess Lab provides affordable advising services and tools to education nonprofits that are dedicated to creating pathways to post-secondary education for first-generation, low-income students. Our goal is to help education nonprofits effectively overcome obstacles to sustainability and growth.

Who we serve

Our target clients are small to medium-sized college enrichment nonprofits. They have limited resources, lean staff, and aggressive goals. Since resources are scarce and many organizations cannot afford to hire the expertise they need, the nonprofit teams often feel overwhelmed by operational, strategic, fundraising, and communications challenges.

THE PROBLEM

Education nonprofits need help

Since the COVID pandemic, 1.4 million students have dropped out of the college pipeline. Low-income, students of color have dropped out at higher rates, fueling existing inequities. Without education, these students face even greater challenges in breaking the relentless cycle of inter-generational poverty. The responsibility for preparing students for higher education does not rest with schools alone.

➢ Education nonprofits have long helped schools tackle the opportunity gap.

➢ Many nonprofits have achieved remarkable success in placing over 90% of their students in four-year colleges.

➢ Unfortunately, there are far fewer seats available in existing education enrichment programs that there are talented, underserved students who want support.

Our goal is to help education nonprofits expand their reach by working with Executive Directors to grow their organizations. EdAccess wants to be the go-to resource for education nonprofits who need targeted support to help them grow and thrive.
