Empowering A New Generation of Leaders

A virtual evening of Fundraising, Fellowship, and Inspiration!

Honoring PCF scholars, alums, volunteers, mentors, and partners who are dedicated to our mission of supporting low-income, first generation scholars during their college journey. The evening included keynote speaker Dr. Condoleezza Rice and a special guest appearance by Senator Alex Padilla, an engaging Fund-a-Need, and Silent Auction.

At PCF, we believe One Student, First-Generation, One Degree, Lasting Impact! We attribute much of our scholars’ success to our robust wraparound services: a four-year scholarship, one-on-one adult mentoring, career-readiness  training, and internship support.
