The Frank M. Doyle Foundation Donates $1,000,000

Windows of Opportunity

Director, Foundation and Community Relations

The Frank M. Doyle Foundation
Donates $1,000,000

Golden West College is Growing. This fall we opened our new three story, $12.73 million Frank M. and Gertrude R. Doyle School of Nursing and Health Services Building. The Frank M. Doyle Foundation has had a partnership with Golden West College for 12 years and has now donated $1,000,000 for the naming of this building. This project, funded by Measure C funds, is the first new construction on the campus since the 1980’s and houses our award-winning School of Nursing as well as the expanded Student Health Services Center. The Doyle Foundation donation will provide funding to support health education now and in the future.

Naming Opportunities

More opportunities are available to place individual or business names in the building. Donations will supply the classrooms and Student Health Services with much needed state-of-the-art medical technology and equipment. Please call the Foundation Office to discuss participating in this naming campaign. Contact Margie Bunten, Director, Golden West College Foundation (714) 895-8315 or mbunten@gwc.cccd.edu.

Elmore Toyota DOES IT AGAIN!

For the fourth year in a row, Elmore Toyota has donated a car to the GWC Foundation for our exclusive Gala Opportunity Drawing—this year it is a 2009 Toyota Prius Hybrbrid! The lucky winner can choose any Prius color.

Opportunity Drawing tickets are on sale now for $100 each and only 500 tickets will be sold. The drawing will be held at the GWC Gala on March 21, 2009 at the Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort in Huntington Beach. This year, the Gala will celebrate the Huntington Beach Centennial Anniversary with a Turn of the Century theme.

Proceeds from the Gala support student scholarships, fund equipment and special projects for the campus, and the Book Star Program by purchasing textbooks that students can check out in the library.

We thank Judy Elmore, President of Elmore Toyota, for her generous and continuing support of GWC. Judy is the President of the Golden West College Foundation and has been active on the Board since 1999.

To purchase an opportunity drawing ticket, or to make an early reservation to the Gala, please call the Foundation Office at 714-895-8316. Visit our website for more information www.gwcgala.com.

Hint: An Opportunity Drawing ticket would make a thoughtful gift!
