“College is awesome, but it is expensive."
By doubling Ricky's deposit, Opportunity Fund helped Ricky save up enough money to attend San Jose State University and earn a degree in computer science.
Working Towards a Dream
"College is awesome…but it is expensive." Ricky works at a local McDonalds and his mom is a janitor. They live paycheck to paycheck, and their income is not enough to afford tuition.
“"I’m the first in my family to go to college. Opportunity Fund’s support gives me confidence that I belong here.” -Ricky, microsavings client
Doubling his Deposit
Every month, Ricky puts $115 from his paycheck into his savings account. Next year, he will have $2,000 set aside. Opportunity Fund and donors like you will match his savings to reach $6,000, enough to cover the cost of tuition for one full semester. "I’m the first in my family to go to college.
