Nine Nickels Inc. is a charitable non-profit organization focused on enabling highly motivated students to achieve their full potential in life by providing them with the tools and resources needed to take advantage of their educational opportunities. Through the creation, promotion, and funding of educational opportunities, Nine Nickels takes a dynamic and comprehensive approach to improving education and socio-economic progress.

Our mission is to positively impact society by closing the educational achievement and opportunity gaps that exist in America. We want to spur the development of self-sufficient individuals and as self-replicating cultures of success that value progress and achievement. The underlying purpose of Nine Nickels is to serve and support students through their formative years in education and as they prepare for productive lives as adults.

We believe, like Horace Mann, that "education, beyond all other devices of human origin, is the great equalizer of the conditions of men..." By providing a roadmap to success, as well as assistance in its navigation, Nine Nickels Inc. confronts the complex issues that limit opportunity and progress within the lower and middle income communities of America.


In 2015 we helped over 50 exceptional children move closer to achieving their American Dream by funding a wide range of summer enrichment and other educational opportunities. LEARN MORE HERE.
