Some people think what we have done is pretty cool but don’t take our word for it.
it takes a village...
We can't do what we do without ongoing help and support so a big thank you to our corporate partners.
WQXR Instrument Drive via New York Public Radio
“Kevin Bacon and the SixDegrees.org team have been powerful advocates for the WQXR Instrument Drive. They’ve helped us spread the word for the need for musical instruments for music programs. Music connects us all - classical is only a couple degrees from classic rock – and SixDegrees.org has helped us bring access to music to thousands of kids who want it."

School On Wheels
"We were beyond excited when we found out that Kevin was going to surprise our students and tutors who attend and volunteer at our Skid Row Learning Center. Homeless students need extra time and attention to succeed at school and our after school is a safe haven for students who have nowhere else to go. Kevin came on his own to find out about our program and returned a few months later with Ron Funches to surprise the volunteers at one of our appreciation parties. To see the smiles on their faces as they got to dance and sing with Ron and Kevin was priceless, and that was just the volunteers! Homeless kids have complicated lives and troubles we can't even begin to imagine. A morning of laughter and dancing with Kevin is a memory they will have forever and we are so happy to have had the opportunity to share that with them."

The Intergenerational Theatre of the Oppressed Project
“I truly appreciated participating in SixDegrees' Pitch Fest in collaboration with Public Allies Chicago. From the initial announcement and call for pitches, I thought it was an awesome opportunity for starting nonprofits and projects to help amplify our causes and spread the word about our programs. It was a great challenge and practice in being able to "pitch" or communicate my project's goal and impact in a short amount of time, and though it was a competition, SixDegrees made the event fun and rewarding to be apart of.
My project, The Intergenerational Theatre of the Oppressed Project, will be able to provide travel stipends to our program attendees with SixDegrees' support. This is important as we do not want the cost of transportation to be a barrier for our participants, and we are grateful to SixDegrees' for helping to support this!"

Public Allies, Chicago
“I have nothing but positive things to say about our experience. Beyond highlighting our work, it was a really great way to activate the passion of our supporters and alumni. And we had a bunch of fun.”
