Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

At the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, we work to ensure everyone in the United States can learn, grow, and get ahead, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, or family income.

Getting an education after high school is critical in today’s economy. Virtually all of the jobs created in recent years require at least some postsecondary education. At the same time, the likelihood of accessing and completing that education depends on a person’s race or income. It shouldn’t, and we are working to change that. 

That is why the foundation is proud to support the work of the Higher Ed Equity Network.
