Making Waves Foundation

The Making Waves Foundation was launched more than 20 years ago to provide students from underserved communities beginning in fifth grade through college with teaching, tutoring, transportation, nutrition, mental health services, parent/guardian education, test prep, college counseling, and financial aid assistance. Research confirms that this holistic approach yields better results in schools and colleges. Through its history, Making Waves has graduated 98.5 percent of students who enter high school. Nearly 7 in 10 (69 percent) of Wave-Makers have graduated from four-year colleges, increasingly at some of the nation’s most prestigious colleges.
