Our resources only allow us to award scholarships to roughly 10% of Livermore high school graduates each year. Your donations allow us to help many more deserving students, and to provide a range of critical programs and services.
Livermore students are facing more challenges than ever…
- Rising tuition and reduced aid
College tuition costs have risen four times faster than the consumer price index, while federal and state governments have significantly cut financial aid
- Employment Qualifications
By 2020, 67% of California’s jobs will require some type of education beyond high school (1).
- Socioeconomic disparity
More Livermore students face challenging circumstances and may not consider college an option. Many simply lack information about financial assistance for which they may qualify.
We are expanding our Outreach efforts to help identify and breakdown barriers for all motivated and deserving students in our community.
Your donations are allowing us to fund:
- Financial aid and application assistance workshops
- College awareness and planning services
- Individualized support programs for students and families
Your donations are making an impact:
Since 2013 the Pedrozzi Foundation, in partnership with the Livermore Joint Unified School District has funded the PSAT for all Livermore HS sophomores [Learn more…]
“My daughter’s friends, who would not normally have taken the PSAT, had the privilege of taking the test during a regular school day. They were reminded to look at college as a choice. For some of her friends, money would have been a deterrent to signing up for the test. For others, their parents would not have thought to sign them up. The grant was a blessing for our community with its diverse population in terms of family understanding of the route for their child to attend college.”
–Roxanne Kusske, Livermore Parent
