College Success Foundation (CSF) is a national non-profit that serves underrepresented students from low socioeconomic families to successfully finish high school, enroll in and graduate from college.
Founded in 2000, CSF serves over 30,000 middle and high school students annually in 12 public school districts in Washington state and the District of Colombia. Additionally, they support several thousand more CSF Scholars in college.
After the initial engagement, ISOutsource helped interview IT candidates to bring these capabilities back in-house. CSF’s Vice President of Operations, Rosemary Turner, said, “Back in 2019 it was a challenge competing with Microsoft, Amazon, and Google for IT talent.” Together CSF and ISOutsource have been able to build a proactive IT Team that ensures that CSF is running optimally.
Currently, CSF is experiencing growth. Rosemary said, “We are balancing our current growth with long-term initiatives to enhance our infrastructure and improve efficiencies.” In 2023, CSF is focusing on access to integrated and real-time data that will allow CSF to not only tell their story but to track, measure, analyze, and report on their services to understand better where they are and where they need to go to optimize their student services and programs to serve students better.
