Community is the Foundation at Making Waves
Our community development and social impact efforts advance our priorities in service of:
- our vision for educational equity and postsecondary success;
- our belief that all students deserve educational opportunity;
- our work to strengthen Making Waves Academy students’ pathway to high school graduation and postsecondary opportunities; and
- our goal to significantly expand our joint organizational impact by increasing the college graduation rate for students in need across Contra Costa County and beyond.
As we work to implement our strategic plan that calls for an expansion of college success services to more students across Contra Costa County, California, we are focused on further developing our partnerships with schools, districts, and county offices of education, as well as non-profit organizations and corporations to secure funding to support historically underrepresented and underserved youth working to achieve their dreams.
Making Waves Foundation invites corporations to support our college success program, known as CAP, through annual contributions, event sponsorships, or through the establishment of a named scholarship.
For more information on our plans to partner and expand, please contact Vice President of Community Development and Social Impact Dr. Carey Hawkins Ash at email@example.com.
