The College Futures Foundation (CFF) encourages partnerships across educational systems, particularly K-12 districts, community colleges, and four-year colleges, to increase college degree completion and close equity gaps.  

CFF funded csb philanthropic solutions to work with leaders in San Bernardino and Riverside counties to develop a collective impact collaborative that will improve educational and economic outcomes in the Inland Empire.  

Similarly, the foundation supported our assistance in developing the Kern Pledge, helping local educational leaders to develop a cradle-to-career initiative. In both cases, we developed organizational structures, boards, and staffing; designed and facilitated collaborative meetings; and provided coaching and support for local leaders.
