Angel Island State Park... 3,000 years ago it served as a fishing and hunting site for Coastal Miwok Indians. It was later a haven for Spanish Explorer Juan Manuel de Ayala, a cattle ranch, and a U.S. Army post starting with the Civil War. From 1910 to 1940, the island processed hundreds of thousands of immigrants. During World War II, Japanese, and German POWs were held on the island, which was also used as a jumping-off point for American soldiers returning from the Pacific. In the ’50s and ’60s, the island was home to a Nike missile site.

Program 1

Student Service-Learning Scholarship Program

Learning opportunities extend far beyond the classroom. But schools are finding it more and more difficult to bring students to museums, historical sites and cultural organizations. Field trip grants help give children these unique, firsthand learning experiences.

Angel Island Conservancy seeks to engage, educate, and inspire the next generation of youth through its Student Service-Learning Scholarship Program which enables under-served youth from qualifying low-income schools to visit Angel Island State Park for educational and recreational purposes as well as to participate in volunteer service opportunities in which they help to maintain and restore this unique environment.

The desired outcome of this Program is an increased number of young Bay Area citizens who not only gain an awareness of, an appreciation for and connection to nature and history, but also contribute to restoring, maintaining and creating future support for one of the Bay Area’s most treasured natural and cultural resources.

ORGANIZATIONAL DEMOGRAPHICS

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
