The heart of Fresno is an educated child

We invest in accelerating progress

We foster community between our schools and partners to accelerate student progress, showcase the important happenings and achievements at Fresno Unified, and fund high-impact, mission-driven investment.

The Fresno Unified School District Scholarship Fund

With over $1.8 million awarded thus far, the Fresno Unified School District (FUSD) Scholarship Fund offers employees, alumni, our community, and partners an opportunity to directly support and uplift Fresno Unified’s students who want to continue their academic or technical education, but do not have the resources and investment to do so.

In 2023, the Foundation for Fresno Unified awarded scholarships of $309,000 to over 219 students. The fund is a significant way we can continue to empower our students, while also investing in and strengthening our local community.
