HELP the Career Education Foundation Grow
The Career Education Foundation was started by John Dewey over thirty years ago to reward students who excelled in their ROP classes. at the time, John Dewey was the Director of Educational Services at North Orange County ROP. The $1500 seed money for the foundation came from the rolls of copper wire unearthed by construction students digging out a pool filled with dirt and debris. Every penny of this year's budget will go to students.
Provide funds for the Celebration of Success Awards and Scholarships
Instructors and Career Guidance Specialists nominated their best students to compete in ROP's annual Celebration of Success. This year the event was held at the City National Grove of Anaheim. Nominees receive monetary awards at the annual ceremony, and on occasion students receive multiple awards.
DONATE for Books and Supplies
The Rotary Club of Fullerton and Altrusa International, Inc. of Anaheim have been generous supporters, donating for books, equipment, and supplies for needy students. The Foundation has set up a budget to assist students with their school needs.
Many student organizations and classes participate in regional, state, and national contests. While all raise funds independently to travel to competitions, the foundation helps to defray expenses.
Join more that 150 ROP employees who gave to the foundation
last year. They know that every penny of foundation money
is used to promote and reward student excellence.
Organizations, such as Rotary International of Fullerton,
Altrusa International, Inc., of Anaheim, the Mary E. MooreFamily Foundations, SchoolsFirst Federal Credit Union, and Wells
Fargo Bank give because they know the impact their generosity
has on the students.
