Assets' students can’t be properly defined by a single sentence, diagnosis, or adjective. They’re not that boringly simple. They are beautifully complex. And without the help of our generous supporters, 35% of our students who desperately need tuition assistance would flounder at another institution.
“Assets does not restrict me to a conventional curriculum that would limit what I can learn in school. Instead, the teachers and administrators encourage me to advocate for myself and take the initiative in deciding what courses and activities will help me reach my full potential.” – Albert Yee, 10th grade
Our Illumination fundraising gala celebrates great minds who learn differently with 100% of the proceeds benefiting tuition assistance. Your support helps raise over 1/3 of the yearly tuition assistance awarded to these great minds!

The 2019 Illumination honoree is John Morton, current Chairman of the Board and member since 2000, who joined and continues to serve because, like Community Colleges, Assets is a second chance institution. “It’s the systems that fail students, not the students who fail.”
By sponsoring a table, buying a ticket or donating, your generosity funds the best possible education for children with learning differences and makes tuition assistance available for those in need. Please consider helping our great minds who don't think or learn alike! You can make a huge difference in the lives of our students today.
