Summary: Located in Vacaville, California, the Buck Foundation is focused on education in the six counties where we fund — Napa, Solano, Yolo, Sacramento, San Joaquin, and Contra Costa. These counties were the congressional district served by Frank H. Buck in the 72nd through 76th United States Congresses (1932-42). Since its founding in 1990, the Buck Foundation has provided full scholarship support to more than 270 students from its geographic area. These students have attended colleges and universities throughout the United States, as well as international educational institutions. They have studied a broad range of fields, and are now making a positive contribution to society and their communities.
In June 2009, The Frank H. and Eva B. Buck Foundation announced that the Foundation would spend down its endowment and close in December 2015. The Board of Directors chose 2015 as the closing date of the Foundation, since it marks the 25th Anniversary of the Frank H. Buck Scholarship program. The final class of Frank H. Buck Scholars were chosen in the spring of 2010 which will allow them adequate time to complete their undergraduate education while the Foundation is still in existence.
