Patrick and his son

Impacting Students’ Goals - Sierra College Scholarships - Patrick O’Toole

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!

Corporate Matching Gifts

Multiply the Impact of Your Gift

Corporations encourage employees and retirees to make charitable gifts by agreeing to match personal donations with an equal or greater corporate contribution.

To initiate a matching gift, please complete your employer’s matching gift form (either through your company’s matching gift online system or by completing a hard copy form) and send it, along with your gift, to Sierra College Foundation. We will complete the form, certifying that we have received your gift and that it is an eligible match. We then send the form to your employer (or verify online if applicable), who sends the matching funds to Sierra College Foundation. Upon receipt of the matching gift, we will notify you in writing.
