As a corporate investor, your contribution showcases your company’s commitment to the underserved youth in our community who are working to achieve their dreams of a college degree.
Making Waves Foundation invites local corporations to support our college success program, CAP, through annual donations, event sponsorships, or through the establishment of a named scholarship.
CAP’s goal is simple yet profound: help low-income and first-generation students earn a college degree without taking on crippling student loans. Making Waves Foundation’s college success program, CAP, is coaching nearly 700 college students. Each student receives one-on-one coaching, financial literacy training, professional development, and need-based scholarships throughout their college experience—working to help them graduate college with as close to zero-debt as possible.
