The Foundation supports El Camino College’s South Bay Promise; programs in academics, arts and athletics; STEM initiatives and student scholarships, among other programs.

Established in 1983, the El Camino College Foundation was set up as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. As student demographics changed and state funding decreased, the Foundation’s focus shifted to support student scholarships, academic programs and STEM education.
