Casey Foundation Gives to Guardian Scholars


December 23, 2004 :: 109

The Annie E. Casey Foundation has granted $50,000 to Cal State Fullerton’s Guardian Scholars program, following a campus visit by a foundation representative and a recommendation by CSUF alumnus and 2004 Vision & Visionaries honoree Joe Moderow (B.A. economics ’70), retired senior vice president, legal and public affairs, general counsel and corporate secretary, UPS. Founded in 1948 by UPS founder Jim Casey and his siblings in honor of their mother, the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s mission is to help build better futures for millions of disadvantaged children who are at risk of poor educational, economic, social and health outcomes. Guardian Scholars was launched in fall 1998, and recognizes the achievements and ambitions of students striving to earn a college degree and who have left the foster care system, were wards of the court or come from similar backgrounds.
