Empower Students & Teachers to Reach for the Stars

From April 1 – May 7, the Cal Coast Cares Foundation invites you to join the Spark Success movement by visiting your local Cal Coast branch to purchase a paper star in the amount of $1, $5, or $10 and/or by clicking here. Paper stars that are purchased will be displayed in-branch throughout the campaign. With your help, we hope to raise $13,000 to support student scholarships and educator grants in San Diego and Riverside counties. All donations made from April 1-May 7 will be matched dollar for dollar up to $5,000 by California Coast Credit Union.

Founded in 2015, the mission of the Cal Coast Cares Foundation1 is to help local educators and students by providing grants for teachers and scholarships for current college students, college-bound high school seniors and foster students in San Diego and Riverside counties. All donations from Spark Success will go directly to funding the Cal Coast Cares scholarship and grant program.
