THE ART OF FUNDRAISING Associate Groups Launch New Initiatives


ith such far-reaching educational, athletic and arts programs, Santa Ana College has many needs for funding its diverse offerings. Working in collaboration with the deans and faculty of various departments, the SAC Foundation has fostered Associate Groups to launch their own fundraising efforts. This synergy creates a shared responsibility and an exciting dynamic. Formed approximately 1.5 years ago, Friends of the Theatre has raised almost $21,000 through its outreach to the business community, according to Associate Professor Chris Cannon. The annual memberships are tax-deductible, and the funds support the Theatre Arts Department’s mission to prepare students for successful transfer to professional careers in some capacity in the performing arts. Two of the department’s students were recently awarded eligibility in the Screen Actors Guild, a rare occurrence for actors still attending school. They were cast in a professional web series as a direct result of the professional relationships the department has developed. To celebrate SAC’s 100th anniversary, as well as Latino heritage and culture, the Theatre Department will stage a return of “Zoot Suit”, featuring original Broadway cast member and film and TV actor Mike Gomez. Santa Ana College operates two premier art galleries, one on the main campus and another in the Santora Building


in the Downtown Artists Village. Both galleries have a strong presence in the community and, thanks to partnerships with businesses and community organizations, have been able to offer scholarships and grants to students. Gallery Director Phil Marquez, who joined the SAC faculty five years ago as chair of the Art Department, says the galleries are selffunded, thanks in large part to the Friends of Art Galleries. The SAC Foundation each year purchases art from the annual student art show, which is then hung on walls across campus. There are also two professional exhibits on campus annually, one featuring faculty artwork. The bustling Santora Building hosts eight exhibits a year, one of which is a local high school student invitational. “This gives them a professional experience and hopefully entices them to look more closely at attending Santa Ana College,” says Marquez. Friends of the Fire Academy is the newest of these groups. Spearheaded by Jamie Pirritano, alum and Foundation board member, and Don Mahany, Associate Dean of Fire Technology, this associate group helps fire tech students and Fire Academy recruits manage the costs of the program, as well as ensuring that the Fire Academy has the proper tools and equipment to safely train its attendees. Pirritano says, “Attending the Fire Academy is a three-to-four month full-time commitment, 12 hours a day, five days a week; it is impossible to have another job. In addition, it costs $3,000-$4,000 to get through it. A recruit with a family or who has not saved enough money before entering the Academy will face financial difficulties. That’s where we step in.” In addition, he points out that tools, equipment and safety gear are in constant use, leading to degradation. Friends of the Fire Academy is setting up a General Fund so equipment can be replaced in a more timely manner, helping to maintain the SAC Fire Academy’s reputation as one of the most prestigious in the United States. The “88-Key Fundraising Campaign” is an innovative fundraiser launched by Friends of SAC Music in order to purchase


Santa Ana College a Steinway Concert Grand Piano valued at $130,000. According to Brian Kehlenbach, Associate Professor of Music, “A concert grand piano is the size appropriate for Phillips Hall, our 350-seat auditorium on the campus. Only this size will project the full range of musicality necessary for a top quality performance in this theatre. Our students need the experience of playing on such a piano, which will not be used for practice, but for performances only.” The campaign was launched with a kick-off concert featuring faculty member and world-class pianist Jungwon Jin, which generated more than $35,000. Patrons were invited to purchase one of the 88 keys on a Steinway grand piano, with prices ranging from $250 up to $10,000 for the Middle C key, deemed by pianists the most important key. It has already been purchased by Wade Francis of Unicom Financial. The SAC Foundation is providing matching funds, and other concerts are currently being planned. It is hoped to acquire the Steinway in time to help Santa Ana College celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2015. The Athletic Hall of Fame for many years has sponsored the Ed Arnold Golf Classic, a very successful event, whose revenue has provided for equipment, football and softball uniforms, a baseball scoreboard and wrestling state championship rings, as well as more than $60,000 in student-athlete scholarships. In conjunction with the Athletic Hall of Fame, the Athletic Department has launched the Dons Athletic Circle, which will allow for alum, businesses, and the local community to support specific and/or all 16 intercollegiate programs throughout the year. These new giving opportunities will increase overall awareness and support for the Athletic Program. “These associate groups generate a shared enthusiasm and responsibility for the mission of their various departments,” says SAC Foundation Executive Director Christina Romero. “Supported by outstanding programming, they help to build an environment for successful fundraising. We are grateful for these collaborations.”





resident’s Circle, fostered by Dr. Erlinda Martinez and the Santa Ana College Foundation Board of Directors, includes more than 40 members who donate unrestricted funds that not only meet the urgent needs of SAC students, but also directly support ALL of the work of the Foundation throughout the year.  Since its inception in 2007, President’s Circle members have raised nearly a quarter million dollars of unrestricted funds for students and the Foundation’s greatest needs. Members of the President’s Circle receive unique opportunities and invitations, in addition to the satisfaction of playing a significant role in the education of deserving students. These include special events such as the Pageant of the Trees, President’s Circle Reception, President’s Night at the Theatre, and campus events and lectures throughout the year.

Donnie Crevier and Ramiro Ochoa

“To me, it is double the fun to be in a position where we can help such a deserving student. I am going to enjoy playing a small role in what I am sure is going to be Ramiro’s remarkable life story.” -Donnie Crevier

At many of these events, the SAC Foundation showcases one of its amazing scholarship recipients. At a President’s Circle Reception last year Ramiro Ochoa was that student. He never imagined that his speaking at that event would strike a chord with President’s Circle member and longtime BMW dealership owner Donnie Crevier and spark a friendship that would change his life. “I did not personally meet Mr. Crevier at that event,” Ramiro explains. “He contacted Christina Romero afterwards to say he would like to meet me, so she and I went to his office. He has become a mentor to me, sharing his wisdom, giving me tips and helping me to see different perspectives.” Ramiro, now an economics major at University of Southern California (USC), says the two e-mail frequently. “We talk a lot about school, about professional and life plans. I appreciate and value our relationship very much.”


This year, we welcomed 9 new members bringing our total membership to 42 and raising over $54,000. They are:

PARTNERS • Bob Acosta • Wylie & Bette Aitken • Robert & Cheryl Ooten • Schools First Federal Credit Union • Westberg + White, Inc.


Those life plans are very impressive. Ramiro says he plans to get a graduate degree in economics, work for a while in finance, banking, or government, and then attend law school. He has added some legal classes to his curriculum and is currently on the USC mock trial team that will compete all over the U.S. during the next school year. Donnie observes, “I am lucky to be a part of Ramiro’s growth. He has great presence, earns super grades and is an awesome leader. In addition, he is very communicative and responsive to ideas and suggestions. He applies himself diligently to whatever he takes on. When he was only 16, he saw an ad in the paper from a law firm for telemarketing. They were reluctant to hire him because of his age, but he convinced them to give him a shot. He was so successful that the new clients wanted to hire him as their legal representation, and he had to steer them to the company’s professional team.” After graduating from SAC, Ramiro was accepted at USC, but found that his savings did not quite meet the needed funding. Donnie recruited another member of the President’s Circle, E.J. Tracy, to join him in filling the financial gap. “To me, it is double the fun to be in a position where we can help such a deserving student. I am going to enjoy playing a small role in what I am sure is going to be Ramiro’s remarkable life story.” Generosity and compassion such as Donnie Crevier’s are also a remarkable life story, and they spur others to follow suit. We are so grateful to this elite group of donors who allow the Foundation to meet the needs of our students in these unique ways.

Thomas E. Lutz

When Engin Artemel

emigrated from Istanbul, Turkey, he credits Santa Ana College with not only offering him an excellent education, but also a first-rate orientation to the United States and a part-time job in his field. He went on to have a brilliant career in public works and administration in Alexandria, Virginia, which has bestowed upon him a Living Legend Award. Engin has also consulted with the U.S. Agency for International Development, the World Bank and the United Nations in their efforts to assist emerging democracies in less developed countries.

Thomas E. Lutz

embodies a community leader in Santa Ana, where he was born, grew up and resides today. A councilman for 8 years, including two as mayor pro tem, Tom led the revitalization of the downtown area. The Artists Village, vibrant restaurants and interesting stores were lured to Santa Ana under Tom’s tenure. He is responsible for bringing in the Orange County High School of the Arts, refurbishing a facility for the Orange County Center for Contemporary Arts and numerous other programs in support of the arts, an interest that dates back to the theatre classes he took at Santa Ana College. He also understood the importance of public safety, so he led the drive to build a world-class Police Department and Jail Facility in Santa Ana.

Nora Adriana Preciado

the University of Hawai’i launched his 35-year involvement with its community college system. Jack also developed a nationally recognized learning program that lasted 22 years and aided thousands of at-risk students. Today he serves as Vice President for Team Operations at the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges, where he trains faculty and administrators to meet demanding Federal regulations for accreditation.

In Nora Adriana Preciado a seed was planted at

Santa Ana College that has blossomed into a tree of life for countless immigrants to the US. Driven by her own challenges in achieving citizenship, Nora became an immigrants’ rights attorney. As a civil rights litigator for the National Immigration Law Center, Nora has been involved in some of the most significant civil rights and immigration cases of the last decade. These range from early work as an undergrad on the DREAM Act to continuing work against Arizona’s antiimmigrant SB 1070 and copycat legislation in other states. Nora has even appeared before the U.S. Supreme Court as an amici in support of the case against these Arizona laws. She frequently appears on Univision and other Spanish networks as a spokesperson on immigration issues. The Santa Ana College Foundation is pleased to spotlight these outstanding alumni and the programs of Santa Ana College that helped to launch their incredible success stories.

Allan and Sandy Fainbarg with scholarship recipients



In 2013 the SAC Foundation

announced its 3-year “100 for 100” scholarship campaign to build a new scholarship endowment, securing 100 more scholarships to lead Santa Ana College into the next 100 years. The Santa Ana College Foundation Board of Directors set aside a sizable matching fund, with the intent of matching any donations of $25,000 or more in endowed scholarship commitments. At the 85th anniversary of Santa Ana College, Allan and Sandy Fainbarg began their scholarship endowment fund with a gift of $100,000. Their additional commitment of $450,000 in 2013, along with the matching donation component from the Santa Ana College Foundation, makes this the first $1 million scholarship endowment fund in the history of Santa Ana College. Ninety-four-year-old Allan is a 1940 graduate of Santa Ana College. After serving in the U.S. Navy during World War II, he graduated from University of Southern California in 1947. He went on to open three war surplus stores in Santa Ana. In 1954 he was named the Outstanding Surplus Dealer in Southern California. His first retail venture provided the underpinning for a retail and real estate empire that included 24 Wild West Stores throughout California. In 1981, he sold the chain to General Mills. Instrumental in the redevelopment of the east side of downtown Santa Ana, Allan was responsible for the opening of the Fiesta Marketplace. This earned him a private sector initiative commendation from then President Ronald Reagan for leadership in community revitalization. He also received “National Recognition for Urban Development Excellence” from U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Samuel R. Price, Jr. Allan and Sandy Fainbarg have provided financial support to Santa Ana College for more than 30 years. Now, through this endowment, that assistance will go on forever. “I was a C student,” Allan observes. “I could not have gotten into


another school, and my education at SAC helped me to launch a successful career. When I opened my stores, most of my clients were Latino, and I knew they needed financial help to stay in school. They helped me to earn my living, and I wanted to help them get an education so that they could have better lives.” “The SAC Foundation Board of Directors believe deeply in the commitment to grow financial support for the next century of students,” according to Executive Director Christina Romero. “Consequently, the Fainbarg’s donation makes it possible for 36 additional students to receive a $1,000 scholarship every year.” In addition to the Fainbarg’s gift, a $300,000 legacy gift was made by alumnus and donor Thomas F. Humiston. A lover of art, performing arts, and community colleges, Humiston died on June 28, 2011, leaving a substantial gift to Santa Ana College. The bulk of the bequest—$250,000—will benefit the college’s Centennial Scholarship Campaign and the remaining $50,000 will go to purchase works of student art to remain in the college’s permanent collection. As a youngster, Humiston had moved with his family to Santa Ana where he attended elementary school and went on to Santa Ana High School. While in high school, he performed in school plays and competed as a member of the debate team. He began his higher education at Santa Ana College. He then traveled to Japan prior to World War II where he fell in love with the culture and art. In 1932, he received his B.A. from Stanford University. This legacy gift comes after being a longtime donor to Santa Ana College. In 1997, Humiston established the Genevieve Humiston Memorial Scholarship in memory of his sister, a former instructor and counselor at SAC. “Full-time enrollment fees for California community colleges are currently $1,104 annually,” said Ken Purcell, President of the SAC Foundation Board of Directors. “For our students, many who juggle jobs and a family, scraping together enough money to pay even modest community college enrollment fees can make the dream of a higher education hard to attain. These new scholarships will change lives.”




Helping hundreds of students every year to

continue their college educations, the Santa Ana College Foundation aids them with scholarships responding to a broad range of needs. The needs are many and diverse. In addition, the SAC Foundation Board of Directors, with college leaders, continues to cultivate and facilitate relationships with corporate and industry partners to strengthen our academic programs. Moving towards strong partnerships that involve the public/private sectors is critical for the overall advancement of Santa Ana College.

FIRST AMERICAN FINANCIAL CORPORATION This company continues to be a pillar of support to Santa Ana College and its Foundation. “Our major annual fundraiser, ‘Pageant of the Trees,’ owes much of its success to its location at First American’s beautiful headquarters,” says Christina Romero. This year’s event raised more than $33,000 for scholarships awarded through the SAC Foundation. In addition, First American supports the Ed Arnold Golf Classic, which raised more than $48,000 that is used to support the Athletic Hall of Fame and student athlete scholarships.

UNION BANK For a third year, Union Bank increased its support to help fund the Summer Scholars Transfer Institute (SSTI), which gives students from Santa Ana College the opportunity to attend


classes on campus at the University of California, Irvine (UCI).  This year, thanks to a $30,000 grant, 100 students attended the intensive 10-day residential seminar, earning three to five transferable units. Union Bank also is a strong supporter of Santa Ana ¡Adelante!, a program with the goal of putting a college diploma in every Santa Ana home by 2020.

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA EDISON The Santa Ana College Foundation receives $25,000 annually from Edison International for the support of all aspects of the Santa Ana ¡Adelante! program, including peer mentoring and scholarships. The Santa Ana ¡Adelante! program guarantees that all Santa Ana Unified School District (SAUSD) students who graduate from high school, enroll at SAC and complete all academic requirements and application paperwork will be admitted as transfer students to California State University, Fullerton (CSUF) or to University of California, Irvine.“We are thrilled about this partnership.” said Ken Purcell, SAC Foundation board president. “The future of our community depends on ensuring access to higher education for all.”

U.S. BANK In October 2012 the Santa Ana College Foundation received its second year of consecutive funding from U.S. Bank. This charitable gift will provide resources to train, educate and conduct one-on-one counseling in financial literacy for


returning military veteran students. To date, U.S. Bank has been the only annual supporter of the Veterans Resource Center.

NORTHWESTERN MUTUAL For the third year, Northwestern Mutual continues to provide underwriting support for our Summer Research Scholars, which supports students who are en route to a Bachelor’s Degree and seriously considering graduate study. The program features research training seminars, presentations by distinguished scholars and the opportunity to execute a small group research project.

WELLS FARGO Wells Fargo continues to support our Student Promotores program with $10,000 in this fiscal year. This program recruits current Santa Ana College students and alum to serve as mentors to students who are currently in high school and aspire to begin college. The Santa Ana College Foundation is deeply grateful to our corporate sponsors who empower us to help so many deserving, hard-working students fulfill their educational goals.




OVERVIEW & FINANCIAL ACCOUNTABILITY Our total annual contributions of $3.4 million are more than four times those received in the 2011-12 fiscal year. These outstanding contributions allowed the SAC Foundation to nearly double our assets in one fiscal year. A trend towards major legacy gifts as well as corporate grants explain this exceptional growth this year. In the 2012-2013 fiscal year,

the Foundation has awarded over $401,000 to students in the form of scholarships as well as $406,000 for program support across campus. The Foundation continues to focus on development and is diligent in making sure our funds reach our high-achieving, high-need population. It all starts inside SAC -- more than 110 Santa Ana College faculty and staff give over $41,000 annually through our payroll deduction program. Along with our payroll deduction program, many scholarships and programs are being directly funded by faculty and staff, as well as general support of all fundraising events and initiatives. This is a true reflection of the ways that the giving culture of Santa Ana College continues. Our internal commitment inspires our alumni and other community partners and donors to give. Along with our nationally recognized partners in student success, additional efforts in our Latino Student Success efforts and programs are only possible with the leadership of the college and the fiscal accountability that is held by our Board of Directors. Local community foundations as well as dedicated donors make growth for our student success possible. In our upcoming year, we are excited to announce some new partnerships and exciting philanthropic work that will help lead Santa Ana College into the next hundred years.

The Santa Ana College Foundation offers a variety of planned giving options. Whether your estate is simple or complex, there is a taxadvantaged gift planning vehicle that is just right for you. Your support will help SAC’s students to succeed and provides a lasting legacy for future generations. Now more than ever, supporting community colleges contributes to the strength of a community and its citizens. Santa Ana College educates the Orange County community, trains its workforce, and provides access to countless educational and vocational opportunities. Community colleges, though state supported, often lack the alumni structure and support that four-year colleges and universities enjoy. The Santa Ana College Foundation helps to endow programs and scholarships that enhance our students’ chances for success.


Examples of Planned Gifts include, but are not limited to, the following:
