“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”

– African Proverb

Together, we can change the trajectory for hundreds of thousands of Northern California students.

Who we are:

The Northern California College Promise Coalition is a regional effort to bring together leaders, practitioners and resources and share leadership over the shape of college success efforts in the region.

The Northern California College Promise Coalition is a fiscally sponsored project of the West Contra Costa Public Education Fund.

What we do:

NCCPC works to make systemic change by advocating for and/or directly implementing solutions centering first-generation, low-income, and multiply marginalized and underrepresented (MMU) students.

July 2022-June 2023

Year-End Report

We are humbled by the immense support we have received from our supporters, donors, and community. Our growth and successes over the past year have inspired us to work even harder to create systemic change by eliminating income and wealth disparity by making college more attainable and affordable, and careers more accessible for underrepresented and marginalized students.

The Year-End Report outlines the goals and mission of NCCPC, our members, our operational structure, FY23 successes, and FY24 goals. We invite you to read the report to learn more about how far we’ve come and our vision for the future. Click the link below to view and download the report.
