On February 1, 2012 Mr. Gene Bouligny, a generous supporter and friend of Del Mar College, issued a challenge: raise $2.65 million dollars in cash gifts during the 2012 calendar year to receive an additional $2 million gift from him. On January 18th, 2013 we announced to the community that we had met the Challenge securing a total of $4.65 million dollars to help students achieve their dreams. Yes, that’s right…$4.65 million dollars! It took donations of every size to make this dream a reality. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank every donor for giving to Double the Dreams. On behalf of the Foundation Board of Trustees, the College Administration, staff, faculty, and most especially, our students, we applaud you for your selfless giving. We absolutely could not have done this without our donors. Thank you for caring about our students and about the future workforce of our community.
