Partnering with CVEP for student success.

Each year College of the Desert opens the door to brighter futures and expanded opportunities for more than 13,000 students in the Coachella Valley.

The Adopt A Student program was designed as a collaboration with College of the Desert Foundation and Coachella Valley Economic Partnership. Through this successful program, CVEP will match moneys raised by the Foundation for student scholarships. Donate $100 to the Foundation for scholarships, CVEP will donate $100.

Funds raised translate into students receiving 2-year scholarships, educational and career counseling as well as additional student support to ensure the students meet academic performance standards for their scholarships.

College of the Desert students surround us in our daily lives and have long formed the backbone of the local workforce and economy. They make the Coachella Valley work each and every day. They are our nurses, police and fire fighters, architects, auto mechanics and more. Open the door for a student... right here in our own community. It’s easy to help and through the Adopt A Student program every dollar is leveraged toward positive outcomes.

You can make a donation to scholarships at anytime online, or by clicking the Donate Now icon found throughout the site. You can also download this fillable PDF and mail back to the Foundation at: College of the Desert Foundation, 43-500 Monterey Ave., Palm Desert, Ca 92260.
