Every gift makes a difference!
Your Donations Fund:
- Increases in scholarship award amount and number
- Financial aid awareness and access workshops
- Postsecondary awareness and planning
- Individualized support for at risk students and families, especially students who are the first-in-family to attend college
Why is this important?
- Socioeconomic Disparity
25% of Livermore students are socioeconomically disadvantaged¹, face challenging circumstances and may not consider college an option.
- Skyrocketing Education Costs
College tuition costs have risen four times faster than the consumer price index. Our endowment only funds scholarships for ~10% of Livermore high school graduates each year.
- Financial Aid Gaps
Federal and state financial aid has been increasing, but it has not kept pace with rising college costs and does not cover all expenses, even for low income students.
Knowledge is Key:
- Financial Aid Awareness
Many eligible students do not apply for federal and state financial aid and therefore do not enroll in college due to lack of awareness about eligibility and the application process. Help breakdown barriers for all motivated and deserving students in our community.
- Employment Qualifications
By 2020, 67% of California’s jobs will require some type of education beyond high school.² Funding postsecondary education is an investment in our community.
- Education Increases Upward Mobility
Many Pedrozzi Scholars are the first in their family to earn a college degree or vocational training certificate. When you give to the Pedrozzi Scholarship Foundation, you help Livermore students achieve their potential.
Your donations make an impact:
Now all Livermore School District students have early access to valuable college and career planning tools due to the Pedrozzi Foundation’s partnership with the District to fund the PSAT for all Livermore sophomores.
