Cal Poly Pomona’s mission is to advance learning and knowledge by linking theory and practice in all disciplines, and to prepare students for lifelong learning, leadership and careers in a changing multicultural world.
The Los Angeles Times Family Fund, established in 2000, is a charitable fund of the McCormick Foundation and receives foundation-matching dollars for its Summer Camp and Holiday campaigns. Since inception, more than $30 million in grants has been distributed through the Los Angeles Times Family Fund. Supported by the community, these programs benefit disadvantaged children, youth and families. Grants are provided through the Family Fund to qualified agencies with programs focused on education and literacy. The Summer Camp Campaign supports qualified Southern California educational or literacy programs for at-risk 7 to 17-year-olds, providing them an opportunity to improve their learning and life skills within a camp environment.
