The Career Education Foundation

The Career Education Foundation was founded by John Dewey forty years ago to reward students who excelled in their ROP classes. At that time, John Dewey was the director of Education Services at North Orange County ROP. The $1,500 seed money to begin the foundation came from rolls of copper wire unearthed by construction students digging out a pool filled with dirt and debris. In 1973, the awards totaled $300. Today, through the generous donations of donors like you, ROP awards nearly $40,000 to students each year. 

Donations are accepted via mail, walkin, or using the PayPal link below.
