Making Waves Foundation

Making Waves Foundation (MWF) is a non-profit educational organization founded in 1989 with a vision to increase educational opportunities for low-income students of color in Richmond, California. What began as an academic after-school tutoring and support program for 46 fifth graders has evolved over the last 26 years into one of the most successful and sustainable initiatives in the country for first-generation and low-income college students in the Bay Area. Today, MWF is responsible for the management, strategic planning, development and communications, and external initiatives to best support our two programs: Making Waves Academy (MWA) and the College and Alumni Program (CAP).
