About Us


The Peninsula College Fund makes college graduation a reality for low-income, first-generation college students. Our comprehensive program includes four-year college scholarships, one-to-one adult mentors, college and career success training, and summer internship support. 


MISSION

Our mission is to empower low-income, first generation college students to graduate and obtain a job that aligns with their career goals.


WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE DO

Starting as a grassroots effort to support three scholars in 2005, PCF has steadily grown and today has served a total of 254 students and awarded over $1.5 million in scholarships. PCF operated as a completely volunteer-run agency until late 2010, and currently employs a small staff. 


We support our scholars through four key programs:

  • Scholarships: Each student receives a scholarship of $3,000/year for each of the four years enrolled in a four-year college/university.
  • One-to-One Mentoring: We carefully match each scholar with one caring adult who provides support, counsel, networking, and positive role modeling to help each student complete college. We provide our mentors with on-going training and continuously evaluate and improve our mentoring program.
  • College and Career Success Events: We provide all students with targeted, in-depth training events to give them the tools for college completion and career readiness.
  • Summer Internships: We provide internship application support for our scholars, ideally for summer internship placements.
