The Sierra College Foundation is proud to present the 11th annual A Taste of Excellence, a Food and Wine Tasting event. This premier event of Placer County will be held on Saturday, May 2, 2015, on the Sierra College campus in Rocklin. A Taste of Excellence is the Foundation’s largest fund-raising effort and includes a tasting of fine foods and wines from the best restaurants and wineries in Northern California, as well as a silent and live auction. We anticipate over 500 attendees with a ticket price of $125 per person. Information on this year's event.
The Sierra College Foundation supports students by funding their pursuit of a higher education, and providing the resources to help guide them toward success. The Foundation is supported by many generous community members, corporations, alumni, staff and faculty who donate their time and financial support to building our campus community.

The Sierra College Foundation has over 170 scholarships available for students to apply for each year. Former Marine, Patrick O’Toole, took advantage of this opportunity and was awarded the Merry Widows scholarship and the Wally Edward Skudlas Scholarship for the 2013-2014 academic year. This funding has given Patrick and his son a wonderful chance to start anew after enduring an injury which forced him to change his profession. Patrick says, “Coming back to school has been a huge adventure for me, and the doors of assistance and support keep opening up the more I commit and the deeper I involve myself in my academic pursuits.”
Thank you to our scholarship donors, who graciously give to impact our students’ educational goals!
