Alumni Support of College of the Desert: Funds raised by the COD Alumni Association memberships and the weekend Street Fair provide over $5000,000 in student scholarships and financial aid per year and fund many other college programs and projects.
The Alumni Association has donated over $1 million to College of the Desert for the Alumni Association Academic Enrichment Fund. The Alumni Association has also established a second scholarship endowment fund and has raised over $600,000 for this purpose.
The COD Alumni Association Street Fair patronage enables the Alumni Association to continually support College of the Desert.
As distinguished from an auxiliary, College of the Desert Alumni Association is an independent organization separate and apart from College of the Desert. College of the Desert appreciates the support provided to the College through the revenue generated by the Alumni Association Street Fair.
