Guardian Angel Fund

Through our community partnerships, the Ode Family Foundation Guardian Angel Fund was established to support students’ academic success and professional development, providing them with resources to overcome significant barriers and complete their credentials and degrees.

What Our Founder Says

As a former educator, I have seen young people struggle and get into tough spots. I formed the Ode Family Foundation to help provide a little extra boost for those individuals that find themselves in a tough spot and just feel stuck.
