The Foundation supports the Youth Entertainment Stage (YES) Co, Student Events, and Outdoor Education Programs.

The Mission of the Education Foundation of Stanislaus County is to link businesses, individuals and civic organizations to Stanislaus County student enrichment programs that enhance self-esteem, achieve academic excellence, promote teamwork and good citizenship, and increase community support for education.
The strong support the Foundation receives from community members is encouraging. Each year, more than 17,500 students participate in activities sponsored by the Ed Foundation, which is supported through donation and volunteer help. Sustained through donations from generous community donors, the Education Foundation dispersed over $100,000 to fund student programs in Stanislaus County.
Why Get Involved?
Today's students are tomorrow's leaders. They will emerge as representatives of their communities and make decisions based on their experiences. In order to strengthen the future of Stanislaus County, its current students must be nurtured and encouraged. The programs supported by the Foundation are designed to enhance and acknowledge the skills and abilities of Stanislaus County youth.
