Why I Give

Michael Carney with Students I came to CRC with very little knowledge of community college and, frankly,   didn't have the highest aspirations for CRC students. By the end of my first   year here, all that had changed and I became a "believer." I regard CRC   students as among the best and brightest college students anywhere and I   truly believe each student can get "there" (in terms of aspirations) from   here! Working with STEM students in MESA, I read and hear stories of   students in high-unit, rigorous majors who strive to balance a myriad of   responsibilities that extend beyond academics to family and work. These   students often share how they wish they had more time to study and they   apply for scholarships hoping to find relief from their extremely busy lives. As you know, something as small as a $100 scholarship equates to that many more hours a student can devote to studying instead of working. In some cases, scholarship awards allow students to finish their degrees and/or transfer sooner, placing them that much closer to their academic and career goals. Perhaps more importantly, the scholarship awards imply to students that the donors, the Foundation, and the application review team members believe in them and are willing to invest in their future. My cousin recently purchased his dream car and was shocked that the sales person let him take the car for the weekend before making a purchase decision. When my cousin asked the sales rep why he let him take the car, he replied, "because I could see you owning it!" I know the CRC Foundation can "see" the scholarship recipients achieving their goals and living their dreams.

I give to the CRC Foundation because I'm all about providing impactful opportunities to our students and I consider the CRC Foundation a strategic partner in this regard. Michael J. Carney, MESA Coordinator


Denise SailorI am an employee of Los Rios Community College District and donate through a payroll deduction.  It’s an easy way to support a wonderful program. The Foundation program consists of a very caring and knowledgeable staff of two, the Director of Donor Relations, Michele Steiner and the College Relations Specialist, Liz Starbuck. These two ladies along with a very supportive group of CRC Alumni work long hours putting together fundraisers and searching for funding to support CRC students who may not be able to attend college without the Foundation’s Scholarships. What could be a more deserving program? Denise Sailor, Clerk III, Careers & Technology


Ryan Connally and Students  I’m happy to give to the CRC Foundation through  payroll deduction because I see      first hand, every day, how important it is for our students to have access to financial    resources, and I like to feel like I’m contributing to that, in my own small way. I’ve        also been lucky enough to be a faculty recipient, through faculty mini grants, where    the CRC Foundation has helped to support student projects that go beyond the          scope of our regular classroom projects, like our SMUD solar race boats!
