The Moorpark College Foundation was formed in 1980 and is a nonprofit, tax-exempt auxiliary organization that accepts and solicits gifts, donations, trusts, and bequests for college-related use. It provides tax-deductible advantages to the donor. It also provides a method for the college to interact with businesses, the government, and other nonprofit agencies in the broader Southern California community. Though public funds provide support for most of the instructional and related activities and facilities at the college, donations, gifts, and bequests provide a significant addition to institutional accomplishments. Private contributions are essential for the support of creative faculty efforts that extend beyond normal institutionally supported areas, including scholarships for incoming honor students and exiting transfer students, the Rising Scholars program, and necessary physical facilities such as America’s Teaching Zoo, the Charles Temple Observatory, Griffin Stadium, Raider’s Central - the campus' basic needs center, and special instructor-created projects that enhance a student’s learning experience.
