WE’RE IN THIS TOGETHER
Together, we can provide scholarship dollars and related services to students for whom it can make the greatest difference – those whose families are low-income, including many who will be the first in their families to go to college.
“It’s an honor. These people believe in you. In a way, I feel like they put trust in you because they’re giving you this money believing that you will go far, that you will do great. So I feel like it gives me hope and pushes me to do my best.”

Why Invest in Strategic Needs-Based Scholarships?
How Do Strategic, Needs-Based Scholarships Benefit Us All?
The higher the education level of a region’s residents, the greater the impact on the regional economy.
By supporting Stanislaus Futures, you leverage your dollars with Stanislaus Community Foundation, fellow donors and funders to maximize the impact on our region’s economic prosperity while helping students reach and succeed in college.
Join us to change the future of our community by creating strategic, needs-based scholarships for youth in Stanislaus County.
