TRIO for TRIO Giving Tuesday

The Council for Opportunity in Education (COE) is excited to celebrate Giving Tuesday with our TRIO family to encourage giving back to our first-generation college community!  COE’s TRIO for TRIO Giving Tuesday Campaign is asking alum of Talent Search, Educational Opportunity Centers, Upward Bound, Upward Bound Math & Science, Veterans’ Upward Bound, Student Support Services, and the Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program to donate $3.00, $30.00, $300.00 or $3,000 on this special day. Make a donation here.

Each year, TRIO funding supports over 800,000 low-income, first-generation students, and students with disabilities participating in college opportunity programs at colleges and universities across the country. Today, we are proud to say that there are over 5 million alumni of TRIO programs! 

Help improve outcomes for first-generation and low-income college students


As part of the National TRIO Alumni Association, you can make a positive impact on TRIO students across the nation. Together, we can help COE continue its 40-year legacy of advancing college opportunities for low-income, first-generation students, and students with disabilities as the sole national advocacy organization for federally funded TRIO programs. Your time, talent, and treasure are essential in meeting the goals of TRIO!  

We also invite you to create a National TRIO Alumni Association (NTAA) profile to receive the latest alumni updates, career opportunities, events, initiatives, and opportunities to get involved! You can register here.
