Third Annual President’s Luncheon – Fundraising Goal Achieved!

Fri, 18 December, 2020 at 4:14 pm

Cañada College has achieved its $40,000 fundraising goal for its Third Annual President’s Luncheon.  This year’s event, held virtually on October 20, raised funds to support daily essential needs of our students. This includes support with grocery and book vouchers, technology loans of Chromebooks, access to Drive-Up Wi-Fi Service for students and hot spots, direct student aid for emergency relief, plus other support that will help students remain on track to continue their studies and complete their educational goals.

In years past, the College has raised funds to support student scholarships through our Promise Scholars Program, where through the generosity of sponsors and donors, students received financial support to continue pursuing their academic goals.  Due to COVID-19, and evaluating the overall needs of the community Cañada serves, the Cañada College Presidents Advisory Group (which hosts the President’s Luncheon) felt it was important to respond to the immediate basic human needs of our students and their families.

The success of the President’s Luncheon would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of the Cañada College President’s Advisory Group, college employees, generous donations from event sponsors and many others who donated to support student access to an affordable post-secondary education. Cañada College is thankful to receive such immense support from the community. A recorded version of the President’s Luncheon can be viewed here.
