“Helping students achieve their dreams!”
While the Cypress College Foundation’s purpose is to meet the needs of both students and campus, the Foundation is known for the annual Americana Awards. During Americana, the college’s major fundraiser, outstanding citizens from eight communities are honored as well as a Man and/or Woman of the Year. It’s through Americana that much of the financial support for the students and campus is raised.
Since its inception, the Foundation has raised nearly $3 million in support of the college. Over the years that support has included:
- Student Scholarships
- Book Loans
- Department Grants
- Major Equipment Purchases
- Comprehensive Renovation of the Mortuary Science Building
Establishing a scholarship in honor or memory of someone is surprisingly easy and generally takes less of an investment than most people assume.
With the skyrocketing cost of books charged by publishing companies, even a little money can go a long way for today’s students.
Of course, most scholarship recipients will tell you, the monetary value of their award is the second-most important thing about getting a scholarship — the fact that someone believes in them is the most rewarding.
