The Dr. Carreon Foundation is proud of the iconic “International Fountain of Knowledge” at College of the Desert, which was dedicated to our organization’s founder, Dr. Reynaldo J. Carreon, a Coachella Valley pioneer and philanthropist, in 1984.
The Dr. Carreon Foundation, dedicated to improving the educational opportunities for local Mexican-American students, has invested in a scholarship endowment at the college because COD is a vital part of our community. For some, it is a steppingstone to a University and for others, it is an institution to gain valuable skills to make them more competitive and successful in the workplace.
Our scholarship recipients have attended COD and gone on to be productive members of our community.
The “International Fountain of Knowledge” represents the Dr. Carreon Foundation’s dedication to education and our commitment to College of the Desert.
We hope you too will “Step up for COD” through contributions and by believing in and supporting our students.
