Berkeley Community Fund

The Berkeley Community Fund (BCF) is a charitable nonprofit organization founded in 1991 by a group of people whose love for Berkeley and for a community of hope and equity inspired them to set up a fund that would reflect their goals. Since 2008, it has awarded more than $1 million in scholarships and helped 92 “High Hopes Scholars” attend public and private universities throughout the country. The scholarship funds bridge the gap between financial support provided by government and educational institutions and the cost of attending four-year colleges. The related mentoring program provides personal support to the scholars, helping them navigate the college experience and connecting them to future opportunities.


Providing 4-Year scholarships and mentoring support for academically talented, resilient Berkeley High School students.

The BCF uses contributions from the larger Berkeley community to ensure a future when talented students graduating from our high schools will be able to fulfill their educational aspirations, develop their full potential, and share their positive, enriching lives with others.
