PENINSULA COLLEGE FUND
October 14, 2013

I have been associated with Peninsula College Fund for over four years: as a reader, mentor, and now a Board member. Being a mentor to a first generation college student hooked me. My mentee has been an inspiration with the way she made the most of her college experience by getting involved and becoming a campus leader. She now works as a college counselor to first generation students with a local non-profit. PCF provided me and my mentee with tools and training to make sure we had the resources to develop our relationship and to ensure she graduated in four years.

PCF enjoys an extraordinary success rate with 95% of our students graduating from college job ready. We are led by a very talented Executive Director who has been instrumental in helping us achieve these results. The passion of our Founder and Board Chair continues to inspire the entire PCF family. We feel very proud to be associated with an organization that focuses on closing the opportunity gap for our talented and inspiring college students.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find ways to make us more visible in the community. We want more people to know about us, volunteer to serve as application readers, interviewers, mentors, event planners, fundraisers, board members. We could help so many more low-income first generation college students with more people and resources. Our success rate demonstrates that we have created an organization that knows how to get results.
