Student Testimonials

By donating to the Mary Kaiser Scholarship you can change lives.


California Community Reinvestment Corporation’s Scholarship Program, first launched in 2008, provides financial support to high school seniors and adult residents of CCRC-funded affordable housing communities striving to advance their education or obtain their vocational goals.

In December of 2022, the CCRC Board of Directors dedicated the scholarship program to Mary Kaiser, CCRC’s long-time president and CEO.

“Reviewing all student applications since 2008 has been one of the most rewarding endeavors I have had the honor of supporting in my 27 years at CCRC and in the affordable housing space,” - Mary Kaiser

“After graduating high school back in 2015, my sole focus was to join the legal field. California Community Reinvestment Corporation was the propelling force to launch me into this pathway. Thanks to the CCRC scholarship, I now have my bachelor’s degree in political science, will obtain my paralegal certificate in June 2023, and I hope, in the near future, to continue my journey into law school. I owe my career to CCRC.”
