The Education Foundation of the League of Women Voters of Marin County supports the work and mission of our League. It also undertakes special projects that underscore our League’s goals, most often in education.
The last two years the Education Foundation has conducted a spring campaign, titled “A Lift for English Learners”. Our original goal was to provide help to recent immigrant students at College of Marin in its excellent English as a Second Language program. Last year we raised $3,000, matched with $3,000 from the assets of the Education Foundation. This spring we did better: $3,610, with matching funds of $3,000 for a total grant to College of Marin of $6,610. This grant provides a free Golden Gate transit card for 600 ESL students each semester.
