San Diego Mesa College Foundation


Helping Former Foster Youth reach the FINISH LINE! 

Every semester, some former foster youth (FFY) who are close to graduating, do not return to Mesa complete their degrees, as they no longer qualify for Pell funding.  Please support the FFY Emergency Assistance Grant Fund, and keep these students in college.  Let them experience success!



San Diego Mesa College Foundation supports student success by providing scholarships, emergency assistance, and food cards, and through purchasing equipment and supporting teaching and learning. We encourage you to become involved with the Foundation, and change a life!
