San Diego Mesa College Foundation

The San Diego Mesa College Foundation was founded to support student success for Mesa College students. For many years the Foundation focused its efforts on student scholarships, offering nearly  $100,000 annually to current and graduating students, supported by the faculty, staff and friends of Mesa College.  Each spring, the Foundation hosts the College’s  Annual Scholarship Gala. For 2014, the Scholarship Gala was held on April 25, 2014 - 142 scholarships were awarded!

Now, the College and Foundation are poised to expand fundraising to support programs, teaching, students and unique initiatives at Mesa College. We encourage you to become involved with the Foundation, and the new Mesa College Alumni Association.
