Making Waves Education Foundation is a Bay Area nonprofit committed to equity – with students from 5th grade to college and career.​

At Making Waves, we are committed to educational equity. Making Waves Education Foundation is a Bay Area nonprofit that supports Making Waves Academy – a public charter school with more than 1,100 5th through 12th grade students – and leads college and career programming (formerly known as CAP) with more than 500 college students.​

Centering historically underrepresented and underserved students and their college and career journeys, Making Waves Education Foundation helps make college affordable and graduation attainable. We partner with students to meet their dreams with personalized support – including college and career coaching, scholarships, and college financial planning. ​

Our alumni network includes more than 600 college graduates, who earn their degrees and land jobs at more than twice the rate of their peers, with 84% graduating from college debt-free.
