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.

I am so thankful for this wonderful organization. This organization thrives on the principle of increasing the chance for a low income student to go to college as well as graduate and become successful through education. Without this organization I would probably not be in such a great position that I am currently in right now. The whole college process and transition from high school to college was made possible through the fulfillment fund. I was lucky enough to have amazing fulfillment fund college advisers because they truly care about you. Mrs. Elizabeth and Ms. Riesch were both spectacular and always encouraged me to find endless possibilities to numerous opportunities because they only want the best for their students and nothing less. I would be completely lost as to what was needed in order to go to college because before I did not know how to write a personal letter or a resume but fulfillment fund made sure to advise us as to what we should write and how to present them. Words cannot explain how thankful I am to be apart of such a phenomenal organization filled with spectacular people working to help out the community.

Fulfillment Fund has helped me in so many ways possible, that a simple thank you would not be enough! The work they do helps many students achieve greater things than what they ever thought possible. From personal statement workshops to college fairs, the vast amount of college exposure they give to students is truly helpful in guiding us to the right path for a higher education. I thank Fulfillment Fund for all that they do and hopefully they will be able to continue helping many more students attend college.

The fulfillment fund has helped me find the school of my first choice and provided me with various opportunities to explore places out of my reach for travel in order to help me on my college search. With their scholarship, I have been able to pay off almost all of the gap I owe to the school, thus lifting the stress of financial aid off of my parents' shoulders. Thank you, Fulfillment Fund, I appreciate all the opportunities I have received from being a part of the group.

The mentoring and college counseling program is a big part of what makes Fulfillment Fund special for me. I am still visiting my mentor (Ruby) and we keep in touch while I am in college, even after graduating high school! I sometimes don't see her as a mentor but a friend that will always be there, and I will thank Fulfillment Fund for that. As well as I am a double major in the sciences it's hard to work and keeping up with everything, and being a Fulfillment Fund scholar, it relieves me of some stress that I do not have to carry on my shoulders to be in an out-of-state University. Viewers help spread the word of Fulfillment Fund, it is indeed life-changing.
