Board of Directors



The College Success Foundation was founded by Bob Craves (1942-2014) and Ann Ramsay-Jenkins in 2000 to serve a very vulnerable population, the underservedthose who might not otherwise get to college. Bob and Ann founded College Success Foundation to provide students with the inspiration, mentoring and financial supports they need to navigate their individual path to college completion. They believed, and so do we, in doing everything in our power to help our students persist and succeed.  

With the guidance and inspiration of our distinguished board of directors, we strive to break the cycle of poverty through education. Our board members are leaders in academia, business and philanthropy and believe passionately that an education raises income, provides security, reduces unemployment and improves health outcomes.
