At the heart of Golden State Minority Foundation were its programs that support the education of low-income and minority students. California’s public schools have made advances in raising the overall number of classes taught by highly qualified teachers, but still lag in the number of experienced teachers working in high-poverty schools.
Golden State Minority Foundation will focus mainly on K-12 education and literacy projects through our existing Educational Enrichment Support Project (EESP). While this is now a national trend, we have always believed there is an urgent need to start early and prepare our young people for college and life.
With your help, the Golden State Minority Foundation provides inner city youth with the chance to learn first-hand, the lessons taught in and out of the classroom.
The Golden State Minority Foundation is a 501(c)(3), 509(a)(2) non-profit, public charity and all donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.
An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.
The Golden State Minority Foundation’s Educational Enrichment Support Project was created in 1992 to financially enable local, inner city, elementary and middle schools to enrich the overall educational experience of students in the Los Angeles, Inglewood, Compton, Long Beach, Pasadena, and the Archdiocese of Los Angeles school districts.
