I joined the Mira Costa Foundation Board during the past year. I find this organization very inspiring. They consistently demonstrate a sincere and active commitment to the academic programs and to improving the scholarships and other forms of support that contribute to students' success at the College and in life. I'm familiar with the fundraising and endowment-enhancing operations of larger institutions, and the MCF staff consistently demonstrates a high level of professional know-how and energy that would do justice to much bigger organizations. I am also impressed with the College's and the Foundation's commitment to information - based planning and decision making. In a setting where flying by the seat of the pants can be all too prevalent, Mira Costa's discipline and commitment to rigorous analysis is refreshing. Through volunteer work at a local social service agency I have gained a keen appreciation of just how important it is to have an affordable track to higher education for the most distressed youth in our community. The Mira Costa Foundation sees this need clearly and works tirelessly to provide the needed assistance.
