Established in 2005, the College Futures Foundation is a private foundation committed to increasing the rate of bachelor’s degree completion in California among student populations who are low-income and have had historically low college success rates. With an endowment of approximately $500 million, the Foundation awards nearly $20 million in grants annually.
We believe improving college achievement is central to California’s future. It is this belief that drives us to serve as a strategic partner to school districts, post-secondary institutions, nonprofits, foundations, businesses, local governments and policy makers in California. We work collaboratively to increase opportunities for low-income and underrepresented students and ensure a thriving future for the state by removing barriers to college degree attainment.
