The Education Foundation supports students throughout Stanislaus County. Since its inception in 2002 the Education Foundation has positively impacted more than 180,000 students. The Foundation supports the Youth Entertainment Stage (YES) Company, Student Events, and Outdoor Education Programs. These programs expose students to experiences beyond their neighborhoods and promote excellence in education. This year, due to participation in the Community Brunch, the Foundation will also support additional educational programs, reaching even more students in Stanislaus County.
