Acacia Roots provides grants to help low-income students cover insurance co-payments, coinsurance, deductibles, or other financial barriers that prevent them from accessing much-needed services. We want to disrupt inequality and give individuals the tools they need to grow into the people they want to be!
There are various ways to support our mission! Contributions to Acacia Roots go into a separate Acacia bank account that is reserved exclusively for providing grants to low-income students. All of the administrative costs associated with running the program are picked up by Acacia as a part of our overall business expenses. As a result, 100% of the contributions you make to Acacia Roots go to providing grants that allow low-income students to gain access to mental health services.
