Del Mar College Foundation

Established in 1983, the Del Mar College Foundation is people helping people. The Foundation provides scholarships, supports educational programs and works with other organizations to help remove barriers for students. We identify and develop resources that help solve problems in our community. More about our people here.

Ninety percent (90%) of Del Mar College students come from the local area and remain in the community. As students join the local workforce, the credentials they earn at Del Mar College increase their earning potential, empowering them to become productive, contributing citizens. Their lives and the lives of their families are forever changed by the newfound prospect of financial stability. The Foundation's goal is to provide the resources needed for all students to have the ability to achieve their educational goals.

Mission Statement

Del Mar College Foundation transforms students' lives and the area economy by leveraging community resources to provide each individual an equal opportunity for an education and to assist the College and its students in attainment of their educational goals. The Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
