The Ed Fund works with other nonprofits to provide growth opportunities to students in West County, scholarships and mini-grants to schools.
Real LifeAmong its programs each year, The West Contra Costa Public Education Fund (The Ed. Fund) provides scholarships to low income girls who attend West Contra Costa Unified School District middle schools to enable them to attend Tech Trek (Science Camp for Girls at Mills College). This response from one recipient best sums up the life long impact such experiences can have.
"Thank you for sponsoring my scholarship to Tech Trek at Mills College. I've learned a lot of terrific things like Chromatography and how to clean oil spills. I will always remember the wonderful times at Mills and someday plan to go to college. I will always be grateful to The Ed. Fund."
