Together we can invest in the future of tomorrow.
Education is the single greatest contributor to the elimination of generational poverty. Collegiate Crossings ensures every student has the opportunity to pursue higher education, regardless of socioeconomic status by providing individual and customized coaching.
According to the Colorado Department of Higher Education only 40 percent of low-income students enroll in higher education courses after high school (CDE 2011).
But we can change that.
Every donation– no matter how big or small– provides more time with a bright student looking to achieve his or her dreams.

For Collegiate Crossings to come in is like the fishing analogy: give a person to fish and they’ll have dinner. Teach them to fish and they’ll eat for a lifetime. It’s the same with education.
–Gina, mom of two
“Circumstances in my life led me to not have any extra money. We’ve lived paycheck to paycheck. We’ve been without food and without a car,” she remembers. “The cycle is not going to stop unless things change. For Collegiate Crossings to come in is like the fishing analogy: give a person to fish and they’ll have dinner. Teach them to fish and they’ll eat for a lifetime. It’s the same with education. We’ve been in total survival mode, but because of Collegiate Crossings we have been given hope for the future in breaking that cycle.”
We are excited that because of the dedication of generous donors like you, Gina’s oldest daughter has been accepted to and will attend a four-year university next year.
