The mission of the Dr. Carreón Foundation is to support initiatives that will lead to enhanced educational opportunities for the youth of Mexican/Latino heritage in the Coachella Valley as they prepare to become leaders of the future. Carreón Scholars have attended some 50 colleges and universities throughout the United States. The total investment by the Dr. Carreón Foundation in direct student financial support is nearly $1.5 million. Over 475 students from the Coachella Valley have benefitted from these scholarships, and it is proud that 85% of its scholars graduate college. The foundation has also awarded more than $300,000 in grants to local organizations, including a donation in 1985 to finance the iconic “International Fountain of Knowledge” at College of the Desert.
