Sharing Our 2022-23 Impact Report
by Making Waves Education Foundation
Dear Making Waves community,
I’m excited to share our latest Making Waves Education Foundation Impact Report with you!
Guadalupe Ortega has been a part of our Making Waves community since enrolling at Making Waves Academy as a 5th grader. With support from Making Waves Education Foundation, in 2023, she graduated from UC Davis without any student loans and started her career at JPMorgan Chase.
Guadalupe was one of our 118 college graduates from this past year. 85% of them graduated debt-free.
Making Waves brings together the impact of two nonprofits: Making Waves Academy and Making Waves Education Foundation. Together, we are creating equitable access to college and career success for first-generation students of color, and a stronger source of diverse talent in the Bay Area that will accelerate our region’s success.
We couldn’t do it without our supporters. Thank you for being an advocate for expanding educational opportunities.
