Prevent summer learning loss.

Your monthly gift nurtures the promise and potential of thousands of children and sets them on the path to success. Join the CORE today and invest in quality, multi-year summer learning that propels students to and through high school and onto college. More than 15,000 kids have attended Aim High since our founding in 1986, and 98% of our graduates have matriculated  to college.

Did you know…
• Aim High’s five week program is free AND accessible no matter a family’s resources. $10/month fills a student’s backpack and our summer reading books.

• No one eats lunch alone at Aim High, and no one goes hungry. $25/month supplies breakfast and lunch to an Aim High student all summer long.

• Each summer, our students visit museums, parks, colleges and workplaces—opportunities they otherwise would not have. $50/month provides a bus for students to get off campus and visit museums, universities, parks and workplaces across the Bay Area.

• Aim High courses are project-based, and science classes in particular require a lot of supplies. $100/month outfits a science classroom with supplies to conduct chemistry, biology and physics experiments.

• Each student experiences 150 hours of academic and enrichment opportunities during five weeks of Aim High. $200/month allows one student to attend Aim High for free!
