We are grateful to be able to continue to provide scholars with a scholarship and the wraparound services and resources to succeed.

The Peninsula College Fund was founded to close the educational achievement gap, one promising student at a time. Since 2005, PCF has provided college and career success services to 400+ aspiring first-generation students from San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties.

Since the onset of COVID-19, we have pivoted resources to support students and their families to ensure that we are meeting our scholars’ on-going/new needs and that they are able to continue to pursue their college and career goals uninterrupted during this challenging time. It is the combination of graduating and securing meaningful post-graduate employment for first-generation students that breaks the cycle of poverty and increases students’ capacity to uplift themselves, their families, and their communities for generations to come.

Together, we can build more equitable futures!

Partnership Opportunities

Partnering with PCF is an opportunity to reach first-generation college students from low-income families who bring spending power to communities, as well as skills and diversity to companies like yours.
