MIRA COSTA COLLEGE FOUNDATION Overview
The Vision of the MiraCosta College Foundation is to ensure that no one is denied access to education because of financial need and that resources are available to enrich the college experience for all students. In service to that vision, our mission is to promote the interests and the welfare of the college and secure resources that will transform student lives.
Our donors make a significant impact. This fiscal year donor contributions to the foundation reached 1.1 million to benefit our students. Financial support provided to the college from the Foundation (scholarships, direct student aid, programs, etc.) was $324,582, and to campus programs $601,124. During the 2012/13 Academic Year, 1,400 students who might otherwise have been unable to persist and succeed received direct assistance to attend school, be it a scholarship, a textbook, an emergency grant, and/or a computer. Donors make a difference in how we impact our students' success.
