Mission Statement

East Bay College Fund helps resilient public high school seniors, under-represented in higher education, go to college and expand their life opportunities. East Bay College Fund aspires to involve the whole community in providing college scholarships, mentoring, and support networks to assist these young people in realizing their full potential.

Description

East Bay College Fund is a community-based nonprofit organization that provides substantial scholarships paired with mentoring, on-going college counseling and life skills training to Oakland public high school students from low income families and communities with historically low college attendance rates. East Bay College Fund was formed in 2002 by a committed group of East Bay citizens, educators, and community activists.

Since its inception, East Bay College Fund has awarded nearly $8 million in scholarships to over 700 students attending two and four year colleges. As lead agency of the Oakland Promise for college completion, East Bay College Fund is committed to tripling the number of Oakland public school students who graduate from college over the next decade.
