OpenDoors Asheville

WHAT THEY DO: Our mission is to strengthen community by eliminating the race-based opportunity and achievement gaps for students through education. Providing students with a broad range of academic interventions and experiences gives them the social, emotional, cognitive and physical skills to support classroom, college and career success. When we invest in students, they invest in themselves and strengthen their community.


  • All donations will be matched dollar for dollar up to $10,000 by an anonymous donor.
It is more critical than ever that educational opportunity and attainment be within reach of as diverse a group of young people as possible. OpenDoors works to make that happen. Today, there are young people from historically under-resourced backgrounds who are becoming prepared to lead our community in the broadest and most inclusive sense.
