What We Do

The AMCFF is a philanthropic organization focusing its efforts on the Northeast San Fernando Valley. The AMCFF is governed and operated by a board of directors composed of descendants of Andres y Maria Cardenas, past recipients of the AMCFF scholarship, and members of the Northeast San Fernando Valley. We seek the advancement of students in our community and to motivate our students to achieve their highest aspirations.

Each year the board awards scholarships to deserving high school and college students who are attending, or have attended, one of our ten partner schools. The AMCFF seeks to honor not only high achieving students, but also students who demonstrate the qualities of Andres y Maria Cardenas – HARD WORK, PERSEVERANCE, and A COMMITMENT TO COMMUNITY.

The scholarship recipients are recognized at our annual Community Breakfast, held in mid May. The Community Breakfast is the boards opportunity to not only highlight our students but also everything for which the AMCFF stands for.

The AMCFF Board of Directors is proud to offer this web site to all members of our community as an educational and scholarship resource. We invite you to contact the board by e-mail, telephone, or in person with any questions or concerns about scholarship matters. The AMCFF is here to serve you and provide scholarship assistance in the most impactful way possible.

We hope that you will explore the many resources we have available on our site to learn more about the AMCFF, and the difference that we are making in the Northeast San Fernando Valley. Thank you for your interest and support!
