We believe in our students!
Since opening in 1958 and 1967, our colleges have played an essential role in the success of Silicon Valley, educating more than one million students. Whether preparing students for university transfer or to enter the workforce, Foothill College and De Anza College open doors of opportunity for tens of thousands of individuals every year. Odds are you already know some of our students or are one of them.
Community support is essential to helping students succeed. Donations to the Foothill-De Anza Foundation help meet students' needs for scholarships, book vouchers and other forms of support, such as internships. Donors to the foundation also help our colleges fund innovative academic programs and support services that set Foothill-De Anza apart and help students of all ages and circumstances realize their full potential.
We invite you to read our student stories, reconnect with us if you are a former student,
