Each year, over 250 youth receive opportunities that children need to meet and exceed their potential. These opportunities focus on breaking the cycle of poverty and offer enriching activities and educational options.

The Opportunity pillar consists of post-secondary education scholarships including the Ramos Family Endowed Scholarship Fund and Shine-A-Light scholarships, sports and extracurricular scholarships, computer camp, summer camp, life enrichment, the sports faire, and the speakers bureau.

We believe that every child deserves the opportunity for a brighter future.


Children's Fund awards scholarships at CSU San Bernardino, Cal Poly Pomona, and four San Bernardino County Community Colleges. Learn More

Computer Camp

We are equipping foster youth graduating from high school with a new laptop, printer, Microsoft Office software, and a full-day, hands-on training session as part of their computer camp experience. ​In today's technological environment, students leaving high school need a computer for their college studies, trade school, or the job market. ​Through our partnership with San Bernardino County's Independent Living Program (ILP), we are answering this need and by providing computer camp packages to youth every year. We're asking for help from people like you to provide these needed resources to this vulnerable segment of our community.
