Other Friends of COE

When you give to COE, you join a movement to ensure student potential is never undervalued.

COE does more than work with TRIO professionals across the country to ensure that they have all the tools they need to serve low-income, first-generation students or students with disabilities.


In giving to COE, you are not just helping efforts to protect programs that have helped so many. You are investing in hope. Hope that someday, these programs might cover far more than the less than 5 percent of eligible students who gain access to these vital services. Hope that, at minimum, COE can persuade Congress to expand the program to cover a million students from the current 800,000-plus. Hope that more lives can be changed for the better .
