Charles and Helen Schwab Foundation



The Charles and Helen Schwab Foundation believes that every person has the potential and deserves the opportunity to lead a happy and productive life. A quality education holds the key to much of this.

Today, many young people in California and beyond are denied the education they deserve. The status quo has not served them well. The Foundation seeks to find organizations that turn the tables on this unacceptable reality to ensure that each student reaches his or her full potential.
