“The President’s Gala supports the Fullerton College Foundation’s endowed scholarship programs that enable students in nearly every field of study to achieve their educational goals,” said President Greg Schulz. “The community’s outpouring of support for our students resulted in last year’s inaugural event being completely sold out and we look forward to another spectacular evening of entertainment and recognition of this year’s honorees.”
“We’re very pleased to host our second President’s Gala to raise funds to support the Fullerton College and its student body, having awarded over 14,000 scholarships to-date,” added Chuck Allen, executive director for the Fullerton College Foundation. The Foundation exists to promote Fullerton College and enhance the lives of its students by raising and accepting resources for scholarships, grants, programmatic and institutional support. Funding for the scholarship program is made possible by donations from individuals, businesses, corporations and private foundations.
