About Us

WELCOME TO GOLDEN STATE MINORITY FOUNDATION

OUR MISSION

Golden State Minority Foundation was founded in 1974, on the 50th Anniversary of the Golden State Mutual Insurance Company. Established by African American business and educational leaders, Golden State Minority Foundation’s mission is to help economically disadvantaged minority students achieve the comprehensive education necessary to realize their full potential as the essential voices of diversity in tomorrow’s leadership. For over three decades, Golden State Minority Foundation has remained committed to that mission.

 

Although the word “foundation” is part of our name, Golden State Minority Foundation is not a granting institution. We do not solicit or fund grant requests. Golden State Minority Foundation provides programmatic services that support education for underrepresented students.
