The Peralta Colleges Foundation is committed to providing students with access to post-secondary education and persistence services so they can complete college prepared for a successful career. The Peralta Promise enables qualifying students to attend their first semester at one of the Peralta Colleges – Laney College, Merritt College, College of Alameda, or Berkeley City College – for free!

Please join us in making the Peralta Promise and ensuring that our young people are prepared for success. Together, we can ensure that Peralta students have the expectations, resources, and skills to complete college and embark on a successful career.

Join us in fulfilling the Peralta Promise by making a tax-deductible donation today.
