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.
The Citrus College Foundation awarded nearly $130,000 in scholarships and grants to more than 200 students on an annual basis through a competitive process managed by the Financial Aid Office. This financial support enables Citrus College students to accomplish their educational goals.
In addition, the foundation awards $20,000 in Innovation Grants to fund faculty and staff projects that support 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 with a gala fundraising celebration event on campus. Fundraising opportunities and campaigns are ongoing to celebrate this significant milestone. All funds raised by the Citrus College Foundation benefit the students and academic environment of Citrus College.
