the challenge

Wealthy students are 5X more likely to graduate from college than low-income students*.


Read the CSF 2018 Report to the Community.

  • 58% of students from high-income families graduate from college.
  • 11% of students from low-income families graduate from college.

This staggering disparity fuels our passion to foster educational equity, making college accessible and affordable to underserved students —  those from low-income families, foster youth, students of color and first-generation college students.

We do everything in our power to help our students succeed!

  • 62% of CSF Scholars graduate from college.
  • 79% of CSF's Leadership 1000 Scholars ** graduate from college, beating the national college graduation rate for high-income students (58%).

We are 9,500 college graduates strong, and counting!
