Who we are
We strive to resolve an issue everybody knows, but nothing significant was yet done about it. More than 60% of students have their college bills uncovered, even with $11 bn donated annually by alumni to universities, and that is only 20% of donations universities receive. We intend to make donations transparent throughout a personalized decision-making process.
