Located in the heart of Silicon Valley

for more than 50 years, Foothill-De Anza Community College District has demonstrated excellence and innovation in academic programs and student success. 

The district offers classes for about 60,000 students a year, which makes it one of the largest public higher education providers in the United States and the educational cornerstone of Silicon Valley.

The Foothill-De Anza Foundation fosters the same culture of innovation and excellence by providing program support, scholarships, and financial assistance that have enabled thousands of students to advance their postsecondary education. 

The Foundation is proud to support the needs of our exceptional faculty, staff, and leadership. Their talent and dedication to student success keep our colleges consistently ranked among the top transfer schools to the University of California and California State University systems and the nation’s top universities.

Foothill-De Anza Foundation and the colleges play an essential role in nurturing the highly talented and culturally diverse workforce that makes Silicon Valley one of the world’s great economic powerhouses as well as a highly desirable place to live. In short, we champion the same progressive, pioneering spirit that has defined the region for decades.
