About Us

Established in 1993 by a Harvard honors graduate, City Scholars® Foundation is a privately funded, non-profit corporation.


Our IMPACT PROFILE


MISSION: Working tirelessly on the front lines in high-poverty, under-resourced urban communities, nonprofit CEOs need more than creative curriculum and a heart for helping low-income youth to keep the lights on and the doors open.


That's why, at City Scholars® Foundation, we're on a mission to educate and empower nonprofit CEOs to lead well with limited resources, as they help thousands of low-income youth stay in school, out of trouble and on track to a brighter future.


STRATEGY: To fulfill our mission, we sponsor our tuition-free City Scholars® Fellowship.


As a powerful leadership learning community, our Fellowship partners with executive volunteers to help nonprofit CEOs, who are distinguished as City Scholars® Foundation Fellows, build essential business and leadership skills, confidence and connections to grow the after-school and school-based nonprofits they lead from survival to success to significance.


Currently, our Foundation Fellows, 18 smart, passionate and extraordinarily collaborative nonprofit CEOs, learn, grow and collaborate together to help more than 57,000 predominantly low-income youth each year throughout the Greater Los Angeles region achieve against the odds in school and in life.  

 

You can learn more and meet our Foundation Fellows, TEAM City Scholars® Board and Executive Council and our Corporate and Foundation PARTNERS at www.cityscholars.org.


RETURN ON INVESTMENT: Working with City Scholars® Foundation allows every member of TEAM City Scholars® (Board, Executive Council and Staff) to significantly multiply the impact of their contributions. Because, every hour our TEAM invests supports not only the Foundation, but also directly helps build the leadership, capacity and impact of all 18 education nonprofits currently led by our Foundation Fellows. 


Best of all, working with TEAM City Scholars® offers a unique opportunity to transform the lives of more than 57,000 predominantly low-income youth. Youth served by our Foundation Fellows are 54% Latino, 9% Black, 23% White, 7% Multiracial, 5% Asian, 1% American Indian/Alaska Native, 1% Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander; and, more than 78% qualify for the subsidized public school lunch program and/or attend more than 700 Title I public schools in 82 school districts throughout Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura Counties.
