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 Education Foundation is supporting the work of the district by allowing charitable donations to fund educational enhancements. The Fresno Unified Scholarship Fund supports Fresno Unified graduates pursuing post-secondary education and is supported by both employee and public contributions.

Three Ways to Donate to the Scholarship Fund

Voluntary Payroll Deduction Form
  1. Donate by Payroll Deduction: Fresno Unified employees can contribute to the fund either through monthly payroll deduction or with one-time donations.  Complete the online Voluntary Payroll Deduction Form. A confirmation email will be sent to you after you enroll.
  2. Donate Online: Donations can also be made on-line through PayPal or a debit or credit card at Central Valley Community Foundation.
  3. Donate by Mail: To support the scholarship fund, make checks payable to Central Valley Foundation and write FUSD Scholarship Fund on the memo line. Then mail donations to:

Fresno Unified Scholarship Banquet

Due to COVID-19, the district is unable to hold its annual State of Education luncheon in October, the largest source of support for the Fresno Unified Scholarship Fund. The district awarded $165,000 in scholarships last spring to 76 seniors.
