The employee auction for the Marcus Foster Education Fund (MFEF) raised more than $99,500, making this another record-breaking year in Clorox’s fundraising efforts for the Clorox Partners Scholarships. The Clorox Company Foundation awarded an additional grant of $30,000, for a total of $129,500. This amount was awarded in the form of 34 Clorox Partners Scholarships: 31 to high school seniors in Oakland, California, and 3 to seniors in Pleasanton, California. To be eligible for these scholarships, students must attend a public school in either the Pleasanton or Oakland district; have a cumulative GPA of 2.75 or higher and plan to attend a four-year college or university in the fall after high school graduation. These scholars should also be educationally motivated and embody Dr. Foster’s vision that education requires the involvement of the whole community. This fall the recipients will be matriculating at some of the most competitive schools in the country, including Harvard, Yale, Stanford and UC Berkeley.
