Your membership, contributions, and sponsorship benefit our Annual Scholarship Fund. Our mission is to bring businesses and professionals together, promote activities that improve our education, and provide scholarships to our local students who have demonstrated educational excellence and extraordinary citizenship. It provides scholarship money every year to local students in achieving their educational goals. In July 2020, we awarded $21,000 to graduating students from GUSD & transferring students from GCC; totaling to date over $221,500 in scholarship money!
We invite you to join us in making a difference and being part of this higher education dream. Our membership has its benefits!
