Kenny Rogers assumed the role of the Fulfillment Fund’s Chief Executive Officer on July 1, 2012.
Prior to the Fulfillment Fund, Rogers served from 2005-2011 as the Executive Director of the California Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to promoting physical activity and fitness for all Californians, especially children and youth.
As an Echoing Green Fellow in the mid-1990s, Rogers founded the Boyle Heights College Institute in Los Angeles, the North Central College Institute in San Mateo, and the Barrio Logan College Institute in San Diego. These three organizations have helped hundreds of children from low-income communities become the first in their family to attend college. The Barrio Logan College Institute continues to thrive today and is regarded as a beacon of educational opportunity by residents of Barrio Logan and the larger San Diego community.
Rogers has also served as Vice President of Programs for the Marin Education Fund (now 10,000 Degrees) and as Interim Executive Director of Project GRAD Los Angeles, both highly regarded college access programs.
A Los Angeles native, Rogers is a graduate of Princeton University and received his master's degree in public policy from the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit
In Los Angeles, the average high school graduation rate is less than 50%. Our students defy this statistic by graduating from high school and going on to college. Most are the first generation in their family to reach this milestone.
Through classroom instruction, college counseling, mentoring and scholarships, we increase high school graduation and college access rates and provide our students with life-changing support.
