330 Twin Dolphin Drive Suite 131 Redwood City CA 94065 USA


To assist low-income, underserved and often overlooked first-generation college students from the Mid-Peninsula in their quest to graduate, and to help them achieve their education and career goals.


Since its inception in 2005, the Peninsula College Fund has defied the odds: more than 97% of Peninsula College Fund scholars have graduated from college or currently attend college on the path to completion. Nationally, only half of first generation college students complete four-year colleges in six years.

Target demographics:

Motivated low-income students from the Mid-Peninsula who are the first generation in their families to attend college.

Reviews for Peninsula College Fund

Rating: 5 stars  

My husband and I just made the decision to fund a scholarship through Peninsula College Fund. When we learned that the students were first generation in their family to go to college we quickly realized this is the greatest gift we could ever make to ensure we change the lives of these families for ever. What better gift to give than ensuring a college degree and we also learned that statistically from that student on their children will also not only graduate high school but graduate from college.
