Foundation Mission

The Santa Ana College Foundation is committed to ensuring that no student is denied educational opportunities due to financial constraint. Our mission is to maintain, expand and enhance the educational opportunities of Santa Ana College by linking community organizations, businesses, funding sources, alumni and staff, thus preserving our near century of "A History of Success, A Future of Promise."

Through a wide range of programs and the generosity of people and businesses throughout the community, the Foundation supports this mission and its dedication to excellence in education. The Foundation is a vital and active force, ensuring that the resources are in place now and in the future to support this unique institution that has touched the lives of tens of thousands of people who have launched successful careers in business, government, education, science, the arts and athletics after experiencing Santa Ana College.

Purpose of the President’s Circle

To be successful in our mission, we rely on partnerships and cooperation between the college, community, state government, businesses and other organizations that value quality and excellence in education. The President’s Circle offers an opportunity to join a select group of prominent alumni and friends whose annual support of $1,000 or more makes a crucial difference to our students.
