College Access Now

College Access Now (CAN) empowers students from low-income families to access, enroll in, and graduate from college at rates equal to their more advantaged peers. CAN’s vision is that all students have the opportunity to graduate from college—regardless of income or background. CAN believes that realizing that vision will make for a stronger, equitable, and more just society. The greater Seattle area includes some of the most diverse communities in the country and is experiencing incredible economic growth.
