Transforming the lives of accomplished high school students from low-income families by broadening their dreams and preparing them for success in college and beyond. Tax ID 26-2155951


Minds Matter Cleveland is a 100% volunteer-led non-profit organization working to overcome the education gap that holds back high-performing, low-income high school students. 


We do this by equipping high school students with the tools to gain acceptance to a four-year university and navigate the financial aid process. Through these efforts, we help our students develop as individuals. We introduce them to a world of opportunity outside their neighborhoods and comfort zones. We believe that no student dedicated to earning a college education should be limited by socioeconomic status.


Minds Matter Cleveland relies on the generosity of donors and sponsors whose support allows us to cultivate the next generation of leaders. The goal of Minds Matter Cleveland is not only to send our students to institutions of higher learning, but to also prepare them to succeed in any endeavor they may undertake in the future. Your gift of financial support allows us to accomplish that aim.


From 11/27/17 through 12/31/17, your generous donation to Minds Matter Cleveland will have double the impact, thanks to the wonderful matches from All Ways Up Foundation! Donation must be made through this CrowdRise portal in order to be matched.


We hope that you will consider supporting Minds Matter Cleveland in your year-end giving. To learn more about the impacts your gifts can have on our student's academic journey, please visit us at!
