College Foundation

The vision of the MiraCosta College Foundation is to make higher education fully accessible to everyone in the District. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation governed by a volunteer board of community leaders and administered by the Office of Development and College Foundation. Over the past five years, the Foundation has more than doubled contributions to the college, which in turn tripled the number of students who receive scholarships and doubled private resources that support campus programs. One of the Foundation’s priorities is the MiraCosta Promise, which will subsidize tuition for all first-time, full-time college students to attend MiraCosta College for two years.
