Funding Needs

With state support for public universities and colleges falling, the foundation will play an increasingly important role in helping Santiago Canyon College secure the resources it needs to insure that all qualified students have access to a quality education, regardless of their economic circumstances. To that end, the foundation seeks more donations to support the greatest needs of the college, including money for scholarships, lab equipment, other academic supplies and materials, academic research and conference travel for faculty and students, and student enrichment and success programs.
