It takes a community to make a difference
Build Assets, Build Lives
SEED Success stands for Student Educational and Economic Development. We work to narrow the post-secondary asset gap that exists for low income families. We believe that a right single action can make a difference in the community, and that collective action can greatly impact the world. Working with youth and families we "seed" College/Career Incentive Savings Accounts (CISA) to create an aspirational outlook for post-secondary education. Students earn additional deposits for use after high school through participation, academics, attendance, and personal and professional development.
Who We Are
Here at SEED Success, we know that sometimes all it takes to change the world is a little support and saying we believe in you even before you finish high school. Since our founding in 2018, we have been determined to make an impact on families aspirations and preparedness for work and study after high school. We believe every child can be excited about their future and be anything they want to be! SEED partners with over 15 community organizations and has 700+ families we already work with to start saving for their futures. We hope to add you as a supporter or participant.

What We Do
Making A Difference
SEED Success is committed to universal youth asset building, creating opportunity for post-secondary education, ownership, and economic opportunity. SEED = Student Educational and Economic Development! Research has demonstrated that Children’s Development Accounts (CDA’s) improve how a child thinks about his/her future and their academic performance. When there is access to savings accounts, encouragement, and comprehensive financial education, a family’s outlook becomes more aspirational. When youth have as little as $500 saved for education, they are 3X more likely to attend college or be prepared for career. A comprehensive strategy for promoting asset building in schools will empower families to plan for their futures.
Recently SEED hosted the first Youth Black Farmer Program in Boone County, Missouri. Three youth served as apprentices at a local Urban Ag farm and had inspirational experiences. This program will be continued Summer of 2023.
We SEED Success through community partners, schools, and financial institutions.
