the project

We value your support.  More importantly, the students in our community value your support. Without you their ability to continue higher education is difficult and in many cases impossible.

The gratitude and thanks these young adults will experience from your contribution are without measure and can't be thanked enough.

“Thank you College of the Desert Foundation for your diversity and inclusive opportunities as a trans student (transgender man).  I appreciate the support and care the school has for all of the students.  I come from a low-income family and currently, both of my parents are injured and can’t work.  I am working two internships to help provide some assistance to my parents and to also help my education.  This scholarship can help me begin to work on several projects I have planned and to also help me to save up to transfer to a four-year university.”
