90% Graduation by 2020 is a community collaboration lead by United Way of Anchorage which coordinates participants, builds public will, mobilizes funding and engages volunteers in the effort to reach a 90% graduation rate by the year 2020. Through focusing our efforts on students most likely to drop out, the collaboration has helped raise graduation rates in Anchorage over 20 percent in the last 14 years.
We are fortunate to have several community partners who understand the investment needed in the future of our community. Thank you to these organizations that have provided funding in the past and present to make this work possible.
