Last Mile empowers and elevates low-income women through technical degree attainment via just-in-time basic-needs support offered with an abundance-minded investment approach. Since 56% of undergrads report experiencing basic needs insecurity and less than 20% of low-income students complete a bachelor's degree within 6 years, addressing the graduation rate among aspiring technical women represents a huge opportunity for growth. Last Mile invests in striving, low-income, undergraduate technical women with 4 or less semesters to graduation, enabling women to get to the finish line and into a high-paying career more quickly or at all. We've calculated that investing in just 3,000 of these high-potential students annually over 10 years will yield a cumulative $550M million in additional earnings for women by 2033, enabling social mobility and wealth building, increasing women's contributions to technology and innovation, and kickstarting an alumnae reinvestment engine that will enable long-term sustainability.
