Close the Gap is excited to announce the return of its Social Impact Fellowship program for the fifth year. This program provides a unique opportunity for first-gen, low-income high school juniors and seniors in CA, OR, and WA to gain life skills and make a positive impact on their communities.
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the digital divide was something that many students faced with the challenge of at-home learning. Formerly known as the Boosts Resilience Fund, the Microgrant program was established to provide students the small 'boost' they need to unlock their full potential.
Close the Gap has wanted to get guidance in the overall direction that our organization is headed. This is why we are extra excited to bring on a Board of Educators with considerable experience and expertise.
Close the Gap is officially establishing our first national board of advisors to help influence and guide our upcoming 2020-2021 Programming Year.
For Giving Tuesday, we are seeking your help to bridge the digital divide among low-income students who lack reliable access to a computer and the internet. Close the Gap Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit based in San Francisco.
