Donate to NCCEP

One of NCCEP’s most important jobs is advocating on behalf of GEAR UP and the thousands of low-income, minority and first-generation students GEAR UP programs serve.  In this economic climate, GEAR UP funding is not a guarantee. In 2011, many effective GEAR UP programs were not funded again simply because the federal dollars ran out. Their students need GEAR UP just as much as those we are serving today.

NCCEP works to ensure that lawmakers understand how the federal investment in GEAR UP pays off in dividends.  We know GEAR UP doesn’t just change the lives of our students, it changes entire families, and our communities, too.

Make a gift today and invest in strengthening college access and success programs that serve our nation's most vulnerable students.

NCCEP is a 501(c)(3) organization, and donations to support NCCEP are tax-deductible.
