About the Carreón Foundation

The late Dr. Reynaldo J. Carreón established the Carreón Foundation in 1991, to enable Americans of Mexican ancestry to become the best they can be through education. With the leadership of a committed volunteer Board of Directors, the Foundation continues to dedicate efforts and resources to carry out Dr. Carreón’s vision of “helping underprivileged communities of the Coachella Valley”, and has expanded our scholarships to support students of African, Native American, and Asian ethnicities.

Now that I’ve graduated, they’re even helping me find a job!”
