The ACCESS College Foundation is funded through donations from local companies, foundations and individuals who care about giving public high school students the opportunity to attain a postsecondary education.

Our donors are making a difference in the lives of students all over South Hampton Roads. Their generosity makes it possible for students, who may not otherwise have the opportunity, to attend college.

Because of our donors, we have helped over 50,000 students throughout South Hampton Roads attend college, while leveraging over $500 million in financial aid and scholarships for many of these students. You can help local students turn their dreams into a reality. Support ACCESS today!
