Don Diego Scholarship Foundation kicked off 2020 with its initial Endowed Scholarship honoring an iconic San Diego ranching family: William and Elizabeth Tulloch
Your Donation Will Endure for Generations to Come
Make an investment in the bright future of our community and tomorrow’s trailblazers while making a name for yourself or your family by creating an Endowed Named Scholarship matched one-to-one by the Don Diego Scholarship Foundation.
As the nonprofit arm of the San Diego County Fair and Del Mar Fairgrounds, Don Diego annually offers more than $65,000 in college scholarships to over two dozen exceptional San Diego area students who are associated with activities at the Fair and Fairgrounds. Our scholarship program celebrates and perpetuates the rich tradition of agriculture in our region while enabling deserving Scholars from diverse backgrounds to succeed in college, excel in an array of careers and give back to their community.
An Iconic Leadership Opportunity
We invite you to join other torchbearers in establishing a Don Diego Endowed Named Matching Scholarship with a gift of $10,000 and above.
- You may take up to five years to complete your pledged payment.
Don Diego will match your donation one-to-one.
You choose the wording of your named scholarship, the category (4-H, FFA, Employee, Exhibitor/Participant, Junior Livestock Auction, Vocational Education) and other parameters.
- The value of each scholarship will be approximately 5% of the value of the endowment.
The first scholarship will be paid one calendar year after your endowment payment is complete.
As the value of your endowment principle grows, your scholarship will endure in perpetuity.
As one of an elite group of Don Diego Endowment Donors, you will receive special recognition and perks, including a Legacy Brick celebrating your special status enshrined at the Fairgrounds.
