A Brendan Acosta Scholarship Program

Fundraising ideas for schools, churches, and youth sports teams

This scholarship was started in 2016 by Mark Acosta from PennyMac. A long-time supporter and volunteer with CSA (Children’s Services Auxiliary). He wanted a way to honor his son and chose to do it through creating this scholarship fund in his name. Brendan Acosta was adopted through Ventura County Foster Care in 2006.  While still young in age, Brendan is very mature in his love for people and their education. Fostering the Future was created to show his gratitude and that of his family for the resources and effort expended in affording him a bright future.
