Education & Research

Supporting educational programs and research from K-12 through Collegiate level.


Since 1993, the mission of School on Wheels has never wavered: to enhance educational opportunities for children who are experiencing homelessness from kindergarten through twelfth grade. Our goal is to shrink the gaps in their learning and provide them with the highest level of education possible. Our program serves as a consistent support system for our students during a time of great stress and fear.

"We are so fortunate to have partners like Fusenot Charity Foundation. Your support is providing hope and encouragement to the thousands of children in Southern California who are without a home. Thank you for making a positive difference in our student's lives."  With deep appreciation,

Our mission is to give high‐achieving, low‐income students the opportunity to reach their full potential by attending four‐year colleges.

"The funding from Fusenot Organization means a tremendous amount to Minds Matter San Francisco. We are currently in a stage of focused program development to improve our student outcomes and additional funding is critical to allowing us to focus on that goal and achieving it. We care the most about how well our students develop themselves in our program (both academic & character development) and how well they do in college and beyond. Having additional resources to accomplish that mission is vital to both our success and our community's success with its most talented & under‐privileged students. We intend on using this funding to improve the quality of our curriculum and fund student projects that will develop our students' skills and showcase their talents to colleges and employers. We appreciate the Fusenot Organization for supporting our organization and contributing to Mind Matter's goal of closing the opportunity gap for low‐income, underprivileged students."

The mission of The Preuss School UCSD is to prepare low-income, underrepresented students to become the first generation in their family to attend a four-year college or university of their choice.

The Center for Surf Research is the preeminent resource in sustainable surf tourism for researchers, tourism operators, communities, governments, and surfers globally.

"The support of the Fusenot Foundation has been absolutely critical to the work of the Center for Surf Research over the past several years. With the support of the Foundation we have been able to impact sustainable surf tourism policies in a number of countries, provide genuinely transformational education experiences for our students, and create an international network of researchers who are actively involved in the conservation of coastal and marine environments in more than 15 countries. All of this has helped us demonstrate to hundreds of SDSU students that they can create careers with meaning around their passions"

Dr. Jess Ponting, Director

SDSU Center for Surf Research

Associate Professor- School of Hospitality & Tourism Management.


Our mission is to be the most personalized school of its kind in developing hospitality and tourism leaders.

"We are so grateful for the Fusenot Foundation's support. Your gifts help needy and deserving students experience learning outside of the classroom, in settings that greatly improve their education and career opportunities. We believe that the best way to prepare students for success is through education AND real world experience. To that end, 'Experiential Learning' is a big part of what we do. 'Experiential learning' includes attending professional industry related events such as trade association activities, educational programs, professional development conferences and networking events. As a public university, we simply lack the resources to send our students to these events. Our students report that these events are often eye opening and sometimes life changing. We are able to achieve a 99% job placement rate for our students because of your contributions. Thank you so much for this amazingly impactful support!
