Kevin Durant has donated $10 million dollars to help low income students graduate college. The Kevin Durant Charity Foundation will be partnering with College Track, a program that helps low-income and first-generation students complete college.
According to College Track’s website, their mission is to “empower students from underserved communities to graduate from college. By helping our students maximize the value of their college degree—minimize student loan debt, secure internships, and limit the need to work while in college—we prepare today’s youth to succeed in the 21st-century economy.”
The Durant Center will be accessible to all students in the Washington D.C. metropolitan and will be College Track’s first establishment on the East Coast.
“He was looking to really invest really deeply in his home community,” College Track chief executive Elissa Salas said while Durant calls the center “the full-circle stuff that you dream about.”
The Durant Center will use their resources to create a 10-year plan that helps students academically and financially.
