Why Upper Sacramento Counties - Reasons to Donate!
HIGH DROPOUT RATE
According to kids.org, Tehama county had the highest California high school drop out rate of 67% in 2009! The rest of the upper Sacramento Counties were close to the state average with Yuba County above the average. This is a reason why the Avalos Foundation is focused on these counties.

LOW INCOME LEVEL
Avalos Foundation will focus on graduating high students in the upper Sacramento Valley where agriculture is the main employer and where there is a higher percent of the residents live below or close to the national poverty line of $23,000.

HIGH UNEMPLOYMENT RATE
There is high unemployment rate on average between 20 to 30%. This is another reason why the Avalos Foundation believes the upper Sacramento Counties are important to help. Colusa County has had close to 30% unemployment rates recently.

LOW BACHELOR DEGREE RATE
Only 15% of the Glenn county residents have 4 year college degree which is similar to other upper Sacramento Counties. It is the hope of the Avalos Foundation to inspire more kids to achieve higher education degree!
