    Impact Statement
    This impact rating was produced under a previous methodology that is no longer used to produce new ratings, and we are therefore unable to generate a dollar-specific impact statement.
    Program Context
    Peninsula College Fund grants scholarships to beneficiaries.
    Data Time Period
    7/1/16 to 6/30/17
    Benchmark for Scoring
    Impact & Results scores of postsecondary scholarship programs are based on income generated relative to cost. Programs receive an Impact & Results score of 100 if they increase income for a recipient by more than $1.50 for every $1 spent and a score of 80 if income increases by more than $0.85 for every $1 spent. If a nonprofit reports impact but doesn't meet the benchmark for cost-effectiveness, it earns a score of 65.
    This nonprofit's cost per meal is less than 125% of the local meal cost.
