Our History

The Gunn Foundation was founded in 1968 by a small group of parent volunteers, who recognized the community benefit from making sure all students have the chance to attend college, regardless of their financial situation.

The mission has always been to provide need-based scholarships to college-bound Gunn High School seniors so they can further their education and secure their future.

In over 50 years of Gunn Foundation’s scholarship giving, nearly 600 students have benefited from the generosity of the Gunn community. Donors include Gunn parents, students, teachers, administrators, alumni, and neighbors.
