About the Foundation and Fund

The Fresno Unified School District joined with the Central Valley Community Foundation to establish the Fresno Unified Education Foundation and the Fresno Unified Scholarship Fund.

The Fresno Unified Scholarship Fund supports Fresno Unified graduates pursuing post-secondary education and is supported by both employee and public contributions.
