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 non-profit organization that provides substantial scholarships, 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, and is modeled after the highly successful San Francisco-based Meritus College Fund.

Since its inception, East Bay College Fund has awarded over 120 $16,000 four-year Great Expectations scholarships with mentoring support to Oakland and Emeryville public high school students. In 2003, our inaugural year, East Bay College Fund awarded seven scholarships. We have consistently increased the number of awards annually with our highest number yet, 25 Great Expectations Awards granted in 2010.
