Giving back to communities is one of the founding principles of The Walt Disney Company, which is committed to building on its philanthropic legacy with programs that make lasting, positive change in communities, with a particular emphasis on kids and families.
The College Access Foundation of California is a private foundation committed to increasing the number of low-income students who attend and complete college across the state. We believe improving college achievement is central to preserving California’s future, and the Foundation works to provide low-income and historically underrepresented student populations with the knowledge, resources, and tools they need to make that achievement possible.
Founded in 1996 by CAA's managing partners, the philanthropic arm of the agency is an integral part of the company's culture. Entirely underwritten by CAA, the Foundation is able to tap into the agency's most plentiful and defining resource - popular culture - to create positive social change.
