The COS Foundation
"The thing that separates the really great community colleges
from the good ones is the investments the community is willing to make on top of those state dollars." - Superintendent/President Stan Carrizosa
The COS Foundation an independent nonprofit organization led by volunteer community members within the COS District that are supportive of COS and its positive impact on students and their communities. Foundation volunteers and staff cultivate and direct community resources to COS in the areas that matter most to the communities for which COS serves. Primarily through direct gifts, special events, and planned giving, these raised resources are invested or immediately spent for the direct benefit of COS students and programs. Some recent uses include student scholarships, educational equipment purchases, and capital improvements.
Gifts to the Foundation assist COS in providing quality education at an affordable cost, ensuring that College of the Sequoias will continue to graduate well trained, competent men and women who will take their places in the business, industry and service occupations of the San Joaquin Valley. Donations can be given in a number of ways: cash, stock, real property, deferred gifts, memorials, matching gifts, scholarships and in-kind donations.
