Foundation and Alumni
The Citrus College Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation founded in 1966 and revitalized in 1982. It is governed by a volunteer board of directors.
In 2016, the Foundation awarded nearly $130,000 in scholarships and grants to more than 200 students. This assistance enabled Citrus College students to accomplish their educational goals.
Annually, the Citrus College Foundation awards $20,000 in College of Completion Innovation Grants to fund faculty and staff projects that supports the college’s Annual Implementation Plan.
The Citrus College Foundation partners with businesses and organizations through the college’s President’s Circle. Corporate sponsors have a variety of benefits for this level of support while demonstrating their commitment to educating our community.
The Citrus College Foundation celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 2016. Fundraising opportunities and campaigns are ongoing to celebrate this milestone.
The Citrus Alumni and Friends Association advances the general interest of Citrus College alumni, promotes goodwill in the community, raises funds for scholarships, helps Citrus Union High School and Citrus College alumni plan reunions, and assists with special projects that benefit Citrus College students. Every year during the month of May the college observes Alumni Month, and members of the Alumni and Friends Association select and announce the recipients of the Distinguished Alumni Award.
