Who We Are

The Northern California Pharmacy Education Foundation was established in 2007 as a California 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization offering scholarships to pharmacy students enrolled at California Northstate University.  With the addition of a medical college and a Health Science program in 2015, our Foundation reorganized to become the Northern California Education Foundation.  Our updated mission is to provide scholarship opportunities to all students enrolled at CNU.  We now offer scholarships to pharmacy, medical and health science students.

In 2010, our foundation awarded it's first scholarships to eight (8) deserving pharmacy students at California Northstate University, College of Pharmacy.  The total distributed in 2010 was $2,000.00.

In 2016, our foundation distributed 41 scholarships valued at $75,100.00 to California Northstate University students. 

Since 2010, our Foundation has awarded 121 scholarships to students enrolled at California Northstate University totaling $194,600.00.

Our success is due to the unyielding dedication of an outstanding volunteer board who have spent countless hours behind the scene to make this all possible. Our current board is made up of eleven professional community minded individuals.  Without their drive and focus throughout the years, these and future scholarship opportunities would not be possible.

In addition, it goes without saying that our donors are the lifeblood of this organization.  Without both donors and volunteer board, this organization would not be able support these deserving students at California Northstate University.
