Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Children & Youth, Children & Youth Services, Education, Student Services

Mission: The mission of the Fulfillment Fund, established in 1977, is to make college a reality for students growing up in educationally and economically under-resourced communities.

Programs: High school program: 9th 12th grade students attending fulfillment fund partner schools receive classroom-based instruction, one-on-one college and financial aid counseling, sat preparation, college site visits and experiential learning activities. Our programs open young peoples eyes to the possibility of higher education, and change their beliefs about what they are capable of achieving. The lessons of the fulfillment fund high school classroom curriculum are focused on five themes: high school graduation, self-advocacy and empowerment, influences of culture on decision-making, self-assessment and critical reflection, and college readiness. During the 2012-13 academic year, the fulfillment fund extended its high school program to serve more than 600 students attending two high schools in economically underresourced communities in clark county, nevada. This program is now incorporated as fulfillment fund las vegas, an independent nonprofit organization.

mentoring program: the fulfillment fund matches students with a caring, committed adult mentor volunteer who provides one-on-one support and guidance on the students path to high school graduation and transition to college. The fulfillment fund provides in-depth training to all mentors, as well as ongoing support to each mentor-student team.

post-secondary services: fulfillment fund students matriculating to college are eligible to compete for fulfillment fund college scholarships. As students progress through college, the fulfillment fund scholarship program provides tuition support and guidance in directing students to academic, career and workforce training services at their college so they can complete their degree and embark on a professional career. As they graduate from college, fulfillment fund alumni are encouraged to support the organization and the next generation of students by becoming donors, mentors, volunteers and ambassadors. In this way, the work of the fulfillment fund perpetuates a cycle of giving in the community.

Had it not been for the Fulfillment Fund I would have never made it to college. Thanks to the FF I was able to take multiple College tours, teat-prep courses, essay advice, and college counseling. Most importantly thee FF believed in me and my academic success.

As a former Fulfillment Fund scholarship recipient and a current student under the organization, I believe my dream of obtaining a college education wouldn't have been possible without the Fund. The Fund really educates it's students in terms of their college financial needs and obligations to make sure each student knows what they're getting into after choosing the university they plan on attending. The Fund also provides whatever other support a student may need until their goal of a college degree is obtained. In short, this organization believes in it's students and has a high success rate in it's goal of making college dreams because of it's extraordinary diligence and care.

The Fulfillment Fund is extraordinary! They help students such as myself from low-economic backgrounds have the opportunity to understand what college is and how to get to college. Many students such as myself, have parents that did not make it to High School or even Middle School and cannot explain the process of getting to college. Fulfillment Fund mentors are the best! Mentors such as Ms. Riesch and Ms. Zamudio help us students, as well as our families understand that despite our low budge, college is still possible.

Not to mention that the Fulfillment Fund Scholarship is very much appreciated as well! Helps with college costs, such as buying your books for class and utensils. I really have no idea where I would be without the Fulfillment Fund and their encouragement. Thanks to their help, I am now onto my Junior year at the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University (in Minnesota). Without their encouragement I do not think I would have made the choice to go there, thankfully I did!

I immigrated to the United States in 2012. I have attended high school in Los Angeles as a Junior. Obviously, I did not know anything about the college application process or the educational system. The Fulfillment Fund has always been by my side since day one making sure I on the right track to fulfill my dreams. I have been to 3 college trips that they organized, and I still consider them to be one of my greatest experiences that made me make life decisions regarding college. I have also been a Fulfillment Fund ambassador during my senior year helping other seniors like me to complete their college applications and reminding them of all the important deadlines. I got accepted to a lot of great 4-year colleges but preferred to go to Community College to save money, and now I am an intern in the Fulfillment Fund. This is how Fulfillment Fund has changed my life. This is how great they are.

It's hard for me to remember the exact date of when I was first introduced to this organization because I honestly didn't think they could possibly affect my life in anyway; but boy I was so wrong! It has been around six-seven years now that I have known of them and have been receiving their help. They make sure to engage with students in classrooms when introducing them with college information, take them on college campus tours, and even provide some of them with scholarships. I was lucky enough to be elected as one of their scholarship recipients and am now going on my fourth year with this benefit. I receive my scholarship at the beginning of each semester, always arriving just in time to help me with college books and transportation fees. They work hard on staying in your life past your high school experience-- I often find emails from them in my inbox and am quick to open them! The Fulfillment Fund is truly an organization that cares and strives to help those who need it by offering us with never-ending opportunities to gasp onto.

They introduced me to the university that i will graduate from in May. Thanks to the scholarship provided from the Fulfillment Fund I am able to attend college and pay for books and materials. They are very helpful when it comes to anything about college, and really try and help their students succeed. I will be forever grateful to them.

I was lucky to become a Fulfillment Fund Scholar.
I owe everything I have accomplished in my academic career to them.
Without the Fund I would never have been informed about the University I am currently enrolled, and expected to graduate in May from.
Without the financial support the Fund has awarded me I would never have been able to financially get through college.
I cannot stress how life-changing this organization has been to my life.
I am the 1st generation to go to college, and even though it was difficult to break the cycle in my family, the Fulfillment Fund made it possible.

The Fulfillment Fund was absolutely the most helpful program at my high school regarding preparation and knowledge gained from college. They help and prepare you through application process and how to prepare yourself for the personal statements. They offer countless events where you get first hand experience at college and what it's like to be a college student. It's an amazing program that continues to help students grow and have a higher success in getting into a university or institute.
