Access to higher education and earning a college degree have enormous positive implications for individuals as well as society as a whole. Donations to Advance! help make this critical work possible. Since there is NO CHARGE for its services, Advance! needs to rely on donations to keep its doors open.  It is important to keep up with the skyrocketing demand for Advance!'s services.  Its first year, 2002-03, Advance! assisted 51 students.  During the most recent school year, 2015-16, more than 800 students were helped with either their college admissions applications, their financial aid applications (FAFSA), or both.
