INSPIRE Scholarships

Assistance League of Capistrano Valley’s INSPIRE (Independence for Needy Single Parents Instilled via Responsible Education) philanthropic program provides scholarships for in-need Saddleback College students. Our goal is to provide a helping hand to these parents, change their lives, and provide good role models for their children.

  • History of Assistance League of Capistrano Valley and INSPIRE.  In 2014, we started the I.N.S.P.I.R.E. philanthropy and sponsored the education of four women at Saddleback College. Since then we have heard many inspirational stories of overcoming physical and sexual abuse, drug addiction, human trafficking and economic hardships. These women have turned their lives around to better themselves while providing for their children. Our INSPIRE scholarship program rewards their hard work while supporting their academic journey.
  • Annually, this program provides $15-35K in scholarships for 4-8 single parents.

We are proud to have earned the prestigious Candid Platinum Seal of Transparency, the highest level awarded! Transparency is the cornerstone of trust, and we’re committed to keeping you informed every step of the way.
