Our non-profit foundation was founded in 2009, with the sole purpose of raising funds to support Orange County AVID students.

It is our goal to be able to provide students who graduate from the AVID program in Orange County with financial assistance to attend the college of their choice. 

In many cases, even when students receive financial aid, there are still outstanding academic expenses that the student has no means to afford. This is where we come in.

Each academic year, we gather funds from donors and fundraising efforts and award scholarships ranging from $500-$5,000 per student.


In order to be eligible to receive a scholarship, graduating students from the AVID program in Orange County must apply and respond to essay questions about their experience and their future plans. Applications are then scored by a panel of readers and scholarships are awarded at the end of the academic year.
