We are closely monitoring the latest information and updates from state, local, and school officials regarding the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). With the safety and interest of our supporters and staff in mind, our spring events have been postponed and all By Degrees team members are working from home.
Sweet Dreams 2020
Over the last 13 years, our annual Sweet Dreams event has raised nearly one million dollars to support the college and career dreams of our students.
This year will be our 14th annual event, and we need your support now more than ever. Be on the lookout for more information about Sweet Dreams 2020 in the next few weeks!

The By Degrees Team
Our physical office and schools may be closed, but our team is hard at work. We are focused on assisting school staff and students with needs as they arise and continue to plan our postsecondary and career programing for when school resumes.
As a Des Moines-based nonprofit with a small but mighty team, we rely on the donations of our local community to remain a strong and consistent presence in our schools and students’ lives. In times like these, your support makes our continued work possible.
Should we make additional changes or announcements, we will share those updates on our website and social media channels.
Thank you for remaining a steadfast supporter of our work, and for being part of the By Degrees difference.
KING COHORT GRADUATES
Through our original cohort model, we adopted the first grade class at Des Moines' King Elementary School in 2006. These students graduated from high school in spring 2018.
