"Before QuestBridge, I was considering colleges close to home that I could afford based on local scholarships and federal aid. However, after hearing of QuestBridge, I started to dream bigger, coming to understand that acceptance to amazing colleges was not only within my grasp, but financially feasible as well."
|Get Involved with QuestBridge|
At Quest, one of our main philosophies is to make sure everyone has a rich experience – our students, college partners, corporate partners, mentors, staff, and donors alike. Quest has many meaningful ways for visionary individuals, corporations, institutions, and organizations to become a part of our QuestBridge ecosystem and have highly leveraged impact to direct one-on-one influence.
QuestBridge shares the financial cost of our deep recruiting networks and support systems with our college partners, personalized scholarship clients, and internship providers. This combined revenue stream essentially covers Quest's core recruiting budget. This core economic recruitment model has been self-sustaining since 2010. This has allowed us to shift our focus to new forms of recruitment, support, and enhanced leadership training of our students and improved national workshops and fledgling internship program.
Quest does welcome financial support for special projects of interest to donors, and our revenue model allows these donations to go directly to the project rather than overhead or indirect costs. Quest is also a very efficient organization, and the past ten years of audited financial statements are available to our partners.
