On February 4, 1987, a group of Rotarians met to fine-tune the plan and elect the first Board of Directors for the new foundation. As Elk Grove has grown, the regional Scholarship Foundation has kept pace. More scholarships are added each year with 170 scholarships awarded in 2020. The board of directors has been expanded several times, and it now includes representatives from a variety of local service organizations as well as the community at large.

For more than 150 years, the people of the Elk Grove area have made it clear how highly they value education. The strong community involvement in public education dates back to the post-Gold Rush era when one-room country schools served the farming families of the south county. In 1852, the first public school in Sacramento County opened just south of what is now the city of Elk Grove. In 1898, the town became the site of the first union high school in the state of California. In 1909, Elk Grove opened the first rural library in the state, and the list goes on and on. That commitment to excellence in education has never wavered and remains one of the main reasons that hundreds of new families move to the Elk Grove and the towns that surround the city each year.
