Partnering with foundations to fuel learner and organizational transformation

Expanding reach, improving outcomes and closing equity gaps

As a nonprofit, InsideTrack partners with philanthropic foundations to maximize our impact, expanding access to one-on-one success coaching that advances equity and helps all learners achieve their education and career goals. To date, we have supported over 3.2 million learners through our direct coaching, and we have positively impacted millions more by building internal coaching capacity within postsecondary institutions and workforce organizations, driving sustainable success for years to come.

Partnering with purpose-led funders and organizations, we spark change for all individuals — from a mosaic of backgrounds and circumstances — supporting them to:

  • Lean into their strengths

  • Connect to the resources and support around them

  • Build motivation that will help them gain economic and social mobility


For some, this means fueling equitable attainment of post-secondary degrees and certifications. For others, it’s advancing toward the next step in their career through job-specific credentials and programs. For all, funding can take them farther.

Philanthropic partners with a passion for impact

Reconnect to Complete initiatives address the Some College, No Credential gap

One of InsideTrack’s key mission-driven initiatives is working with states, institutions and funders to find innovative solutions for helping adult learners get back to college to complete a credential or degree — ultimately fueling social and economic opportunities. Work is already underway in multiple states and institutional networks, and the initial results are strong. And expansive initiatives like this can’t happen without crucial funding support. 

young students doing their homework

Launching a successful adult learner re-enrollment program takes a combination of campus leadership who can assess what non-traditional students need to succeed, and perhaps most importantly, a proven engagement model. InsideTrack’s coaching framework proved to be a pivotal difference that positively impacted students, demonstrating higher re-enrollment rates than we had hoped for.
