Our Partners

Whether at the local community level or nationally, Say Yes’ partnerships are critical to the success of its strategy. Our partners include city, county and school officials; teachers and parents; unions; businesses; colleges and universities; foundations and other philanthropic organizations, and faith-based organizations.

Our Higher Ed Partners

In joining the Say Yes Higher Education Compact, private colleges and universities agree to ensure that students from Say Yes communities whose annual family income is at or below $75,000 are typically eligible, at a minimum, to attend tuition-free, provided they are accepted through the institution’s regular admission process.

Donors and Investors

Say Yes Guilford will continue to build the endowment so that the promise of last-dollar tuition scholarships continues well into the future. Our goal is a total of $70 million, and you can donate today to help local students reach their dreams of completing a college education.
