The California Student Aid Commission awarded several 1:1 Fund partners grants to strengthen their CSA programs as part of a one-time, $3 million state grant program to support local CSA programs. San Francisco’s Kindergarten to College program received more than $926,000, El Monte Promise Foundation won nearly $450,000 and Oakland Promise’s Kindergarten to College program received more than $400,000.
The grant money is designed to help CSA programs award incentive funds to their children’s CSAs, conduct outreach about their programs and support an established evaluation that synthesizes trends in the children’s savings field and develops best practices. Congratulations to our partners for receiving this financial boost!
