We Can Help

Completing your college degree/credential can be an arduous task.   You are not alone, let us coach you.  We have experience helping hundreds of students complete their degrees.

Secure Your Future

Completing your degree is not a guarantee for success but an opportunity for success.  The literacy of the 21st century is no longer writing and ‘rithmetic but learning and re-learning.

Complete Your Dream

For many working adults, completing a degree is a way to complete unfinished business.  Finishing what you’ve started is good for your spirit, not just your income.

Degrees Matter! is a shared partnership between The Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro, Opportunity Greensboro and The United Way of Greater Greensboro.  Our mission is to increase the number of adults with college degrees in Greater Greensboro/High Point; by engaging, connecting and supporting the 67,000+ residents who have been to college but not finished a degree.  Degrees Matter! strives to be a leader in North Carolina and the nation in this work.
