2024 Fundraising Campaign

With the help of donors in our own community, the Foundation is able to provide between 50 and 70 scholarships annually but there are many others that are eligible but there's not enough funding to meet our needs. So, please consider helping kids in our own community that are from underrepresented, low-income, high-performing families that have a dream of attending college. Almost all are first in their family to attend college. We'll be contacting you soon.

Graduation Data About the Class of 2014

52% Graduated with Bachelor's Degree - a Great Investment in Our Community

Ontario, California, September 11, 2020 -- Last year the Foundation reported on the graduation rate for 2013 as many donors have asked if our Scholarship recipients have completed their coursework and what the graduation rate is for the recipients. The Foundation recently completed an extensive review of the 65 Scholars that graduated from High School in 2014 and we are pleased to present the following results:

  • Scholarships Awarded = 65 (100%)
  • Students Not Located = 23 (35%)
  • Number of Bachelor's Degrees Received = 34 (52%)
  • Number of Bachelor's with Master's Degrees = 0 (0%)
  • Number pursuing Master's Degrees=4 (6%)
  • Number still pursuing AA or Bachelor's = 0 (0%)
  • Number of pursuing PhD = 1 (1%)
  • Number that attended but no additional info available = 8 (12%)
  • Grand Total Receiving Bachelor's Degrees = 34 (52%)

The National graduation rate is about 60%. However, we are unable to access school records as privacy regulations make it impossible to locate some students including those that may have had name changes. If we look at the total graduation rate of the students we located, we get a resounding 81% graduation rate. Congratulations Class of 2014!
