Private Sponsors

California law has dictated that no state funds shall be used in the development or implementation of this program and that all costs must be funded through private donations. Since 1997, private companies and individuals have donated over $250,000 to this program. Without their dedicated efforts and gracious generosity this exchange could never take place. The Foundation would like to offer their deepest appreciation and gratitude to those that make this program possible:
