California Planning Foundation

The California Planning Foundation (CPF) is a nonprofit, charitable corporation established to further the professional practice of planning inCalifornia. CPF achieves this goal through its primary activity of scholarships and awards to university students in financial need, who have demonstrated academic excellence at eligible planning programs in California. A secondary, but vitally important CPF activity is the sponsorship of workshops, publications and other continuing educational and professional development programs. CPF promotes the objectives of equal opportunity and social equity in all programs supported by contributions to CPF and fundraising activities.
