The facts are as distressing as they are real. Our community members who lack a high school credential and educational opportunities often face many more difficulties in life. The data is clear. Those without a high school diploma or who lack financial resources statistically struggle to find meaningful jobs, maintain good health and even find happiness.
The economic costs are significant as well. The impact to Southern California’s competitiveness in a global marketplace can be measured in billions of lost dollars each year due to lower incomes, less tax revenue and increases in social support and intervention.
The gifts that you share in support of ACC Educational Foundation make a profound difference in the lives of thousands of children, adults and families in the Southern California communities we serve.
Your contribution enables us to provide underserved and at-risk residents with a singularly unique HSE Program, as well as scholarship support* to pursue higher education.
Thank you for entrusting us with your gifts and for working with us to deliver on our promise to provide higher education pathways to our community members in need.
