About Us

The board of directors decided to sunset the Marcled Foundation as of June 2017.

Since 2004, the Marcled Foundation has granted over $15 million to over 200 nonprofit organizations, primarily in California. Our passion has been to support children, youth, and families to grow, thrive, and to be inspired. To that end, we invested in organizations with a focus on college access, college completion, and career readiness. We believe that these organizations provide the greatest opportunity for individuals to successfully break the cycle of poverty, enhance their lives, and provide a promising future for themselves and their families.

The Marcled staff and board have felt very privileged to have been able to support our grantees’ work and to witness the impact these important organizations have made in the communities they serve.
