Who We Are
The Citrus College Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation founded in 1966 and revitalized in 1982. It is governed by a volunteer board of directors.
Directors are prominent and influential members of the communities served by the college. Each may serve up to two three-year terms in office. Officers include a president, president elect/vice president, secretary and treasurer. Directors are appointed by the Foundation board. The superintendent/president of the college is named in the Foundation's by-laws as the executive director of the Foundation; however, the assistant to the superintendent/president, who is also director of the Foundation and grants, manages the day-to-day operation of the foundation.
