Helping low-income students stay in school and graduate

We are democratizing opportunity by breaking the barriers in education, making a more equitable world for everyone.

What We Do

Our platform helps under-resourced college students raise funds to cover their living expenses, get advice, and build their network by connecting them with online supporters.

Only 16% of low-income college students graduate

Arbol helps students in need pay for their non-tuition expenses by providing them recurring micro-grants and connecting them to a community of supporters.

Benefits of Becoming a Supporter

Supporters receive a better giving experience. Arbol gives the supporter the option to give time and money, a one-to-one connection with the student, impact tracking, and transparency into where the supporter’s money is going.

One-to-One Connection

Supporters are able to make meaningful one on one connections with those they support, and feel invested in the student.

Impact Tracking

Supporters are able to see how their support has contributed to the success of the Student.


Supporters are able to see where their contribution goes.
