PRESIDENTS’ MESSAGE
Dear Supporters and Friends,
C
ommunity Colleges are the backbone of American higher education,
and rightly so as half of all undergraduates have attended a community
college at one point. At Saddleback College, we prepare students
to transfer to four-year institutions as well as enter many career pathways
that are in high demand such as first responders, nurses, chefs and automotive technicians, among others. Unfortunately, many of these students are
forced to work part time or even full time jobs just to afford to stay in college.
Although over 11,000 of Saddleback’s students are receiving financial aid
which represents over 40 percent of all our students, more than a third of
them are left with an average unmet need in excess of $6,500 a year. This
equates to over $25 million in unmet need for our students each year.
In order to help bridge this significant gap in student aid, Saddleback College
Foundation partners with friends like you from our diverse community of
donors including industry leaders, businesses, community organizations,
alumni, faculty, staff and students to provide critical philanthropic support.
We couldn’t do this without you and we are so grateful for your ongoing
support. As you read through the Foundation’s annual report, we hope you
feel a sense of pride in knowing that your contribution has made a significant
difference in hundreds of students’ abilities to work toward their dreams.
One of the past year’s highlights was receiving a $1 million endowment gift—
the second largest single gift in our history—from Sue and Bill Gross to establish the Sue and Bill Gross Scholars for Jobs Endowment. The Grosses have
been generous supporters of our students for a number of years and established this endowment to provide scholarships to outstanding Career and
Technical Education students with an unmet financial need. We are extremely
grateful to the Grosses for continuing a legacy of support that will impact
students year after year.
We received 3,500 gifts this year to fund scholarships and endowments for
students studying in majors from the sciences to the arts. This year’s revenue
and gifts in kind giving totaled $3.2 million—a 26 percent increase over the
previous year and net assets reached over $11 million this year—an increase of
9 percent. Each dollar received helps the college educate and train the workforce of today and tomorrow as well as provide valuable social and cultural
programs and services for the community.
Top to Bottom: Dr. Tod A. Burnett, President, Saddleback
College. Anthony Ferry, President, Board of Governors,
Saddleback College Foundation
On behalf of Saddleback College and Saddleback College Foundation, thank
you for your generous, ongoing support. We hope you enjoy reading about
the successes of this past year. We’d also like to extend a special message of
appreciation to outgoing Board of Governors President Michael S. Hamilton
for his leadership and many priceless contributions to Saddleback and our
students.
Sincerely,
Dr. Tod A. Burnett

FOUNDATION HIGHLIGHTS
IN GRATITUDE
Y
our gifts help provide current and future generations of students with the knowledge and skills to
help them succeed and keep our community healthy
and prosperous. Excerpts from thank you letters written by
some of our scholarship recipients capture the life-changing impact of a gift of education.
“There are not enough words to convey my appreciation and gratitude to you. I am honored, humbled, and forever grateful for
your kindness and generosity. I hope to someday do something
similar for another struggling student. As a nurse, I will continue to
volunteer and give so others may receive the same blessings
afforded to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

40th ANNUAL
SCHOLARSHIP CEREMONY
S
addleback College Foundation’s 40th Annual Scholarship
Ceremony celebrated the awarding of 517 scholarships
totaling $793,719 in generous donor gifts. Each year
the event is a wonderful way to recognize the hundreds
of donors who invest in the success of our students. During
the ceremony, outgoing Foundation Board of Governors
President Michael S. Hamilton read a letter of gratitude
from a scholarship recipient, “Your money is helping me
follow my dreams of becoming an executive chef and I truly
appreciate the help you are giving me. Living on my own
in Orange County is hard and I would not be able to keep
going in school without your help.”
The recipients of the Gross scholarships primarily assist
students in Career Technical Education (CTE) programs
such as automotive technology, cinema/TV radio, medical
assistant, and nursing. CTE programs (typically two years)
open opportunities for students to secure living wage jobs.
Dr. Tod A. Burnett, Saddleback College President, expressed
his gratitude to the donors who were in attendance and
congratulated the scholarship recipients. He also spoke
about the challenges community colleges face as a whole
in the U.S. where total philanthropic giving to higher
education institutions is about $477 billion each year, but
only around 1% of this amount is raised for community
colleges. He said that this was the primary reason why
Sue and Bill Gross started the Sue and Bill Gross Technical
Education Scholarship program at Saddleback two years
ago. The Grosses gave a $500,000 gift to set up a pilot
program to fund annual scholarships for career technical
education students in the ‘forgotten middle’. The student
recipients couldn’t qualify for full state and federal
financial aid, but still had a great financial need and
probably would not be able to attend college without
the extra financial support. The pilot program has already
helped over 150 students continue their studies.
“Because of the Sue and Bill Gross
“Because of the program’s success, it is my pleasure to
announce that this past December, the Grosses donated an
additional $1 million to start an endowment which will provide scholarships to Saddleback students in perpetuity,”
said Dr. Burnett. “We are grateful to Sue and Bill Gross for
their deep concern and generosity,”

SCHOLARSHIP SPOTLIGHT
GREG ZABORSKI • RECIPIENT OF THE RICHARD EUGENE QUIRK
MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP & DISABLED VETERAN SCHOLARSHIP
G
reg Zaborski didn’t take the traditional path to
college. In fact, at age of 18 with little success
as a high school student, he didn’t even see
himself attending college. Instead he enlisted in the
Marine Corps. Infantry and joined the one percent of the
one percent. Life as a marine proved to be very tough, but
adjusting to civilian life after his honorable discharge and
finding his sense of purpose proved even more daunting.
Greg decided to enroll at Saddleback as a re-entry
student: “My G.P.A. was at a solid 0.00 and everyday
felt like a struggle. After such a poor showing in high
school, becoming an engineering student with advanced
calculus, physics and other crazy subjects, seemed
impossible. Right off the bat, I realized that if I wanted this
bad enough, I would have to reach out for help. Saddleback
laid the platform to do just that. It was the amazing staff
and faculty here that propelled me to a place I never
thought I would be.”
“If it wasn’t for all of you, I wouldn’t be
where I am at today. For the first time since
the military I felt like someone had my back.
I hope that through this story you come to
understand the meaning behind my words
when I say thank you.”
— Greg Zaborski
Saddleback’s Bridge to Engineering program provided
Greg with the path he had been seeking. And a leadership opportunity as the Director of the Saddleback
Veterans Student Council gave him valuable mentorship, a sense of belonging and the reassurance that he
wasn’t alone in his journey. As the scholarship ceremony,
Greg announced that he will be attending UC Berkeley
in the fall to study mechanical engineering, and he
expressed his gratitude to the donors, faculty and staff
who generously invested in his education: “If it wasn’t for
all of you, I wouldn’t be where I am at today. For the first
time since the military I felt like someone had my back.
I hope that through this story you come to understand
the meaning behind my words when I say thank you.”

SCHOLARSHIP SPOTLIGHT
NICOLE HUDDLESTON • RECIPIENT OF THE LINDA RICHARDSON RICE
ENDOWED SCHOLARSHIP & DONALD R. ZIMBALIST MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP
W
hen first generation college student Nicole
Huddleston found out that she received a
scholarship, she was humbled by the thought
that someone she didn’t even know would invest in her
education. “This support has helped me get where I am
today and I am so grateful,” she says.
Nicole credits her ‘extraordinary and dedicated professors’
for teaching her how to dream big. “What I found at
Saddleback was an overwhelming number of staff and professors who work tirelessly in dedication to their students,”
she continues. “This is something that is unique and
extraordinary and it makes Saddleback great. There was
an abundance of support to accomplish my goals and
a push to attempt great things.” In the course of her
education at Saddleback, Nicole had an opportunity to
study abroad in Spain and through that experience, her
vision for her future changed: “It allowed me to see my
future in a completely different light.”
Nicole took part in Saddleback’s Honors Program that
provides support and mentorship for students who are
pursuing transfer to a four-year university. She applied
for admission to seven prestigious four-year universities
in California and was subsequently offered admission into
each one: “There are no words to describe the feeling and
hope that that gave me. I need to thank the incredible
faculty at Saddleback who pour themselves into their students and also invest financially in scholarships. I cannot
thank you enough. I was accepted at UC Berkeley, UCLA, UCI,
UC Santa Barbara, UCSD, USC and the University of San
Francisco. I’ve decided that my future lies with Berkeley to
study Comparative Literature and my goal is to become
a college professor. Part of my heart will always stay at
Saddleback.”
“What I found at Saddleback was an
overwhelming number of staff and professors
who work tirelessly in dedication to their
students.” — Nicole Huddleston

SCHOLARSHIP SPOTLIGHT
TANYA VILLEGAS • RECIPIENT OF THE SUE AND BILL GROSS
TECHNICAL EDUCATION SCHOLARS PROGRAM
T
anya Villegas received her bachelor’s degree in business in 2004,
but regretted that she didn’t
choose nursing instead. About five years
ago, she made the decision to go back
to school and chose Saddleback because
it offered a class called “Beginning Nursing
Concepts” to help students transition into
the nurse role.
Although Tanya worked part time, her
income wasn’t enough to cover the financial aspect of a family and the costs of
school. Fortunately she received a Sue and
Bill Gross Technical Education Scholars
Program Scholarship in fall of 2014. This
scholarship enabled her to cover some of
the extra costs that being in the nursing program entailed such as a second
car, extra gas, and books. “There are not
enough words to express my gratitude to
Sue and Bill Gross,” she says. “It’s never
too late to go back to school, it’s never
too late to pursue your dreams, and
if you look, you can find people and
opportunities that will support your
pursuits. I am so glad that I did because
now I have a degree in nursing, 18 years
after I started my first degree.”
“It’s never too late to go back
to school, it’s never too late to
pursue your dreams, and if you
look, you can find people
and opportunities that will
support your pursuits.”

16th ANNUAL GALA RAISES
RECORD FUNDS
Dr. Linda and Ron Lifur-Benett
M
ore than 450 guests attended the 16th Annual
Saddleback College Foundation Gala at the
Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort and Spa on March
12, 2016. This year’s gala was our most successful yet.
Thanks to the generosity of prominent members of the
community including business leaders, elected officials
and college leadership in attendance, over $100,000 was
raised in net proceeds, which was $25,000 more than the
previous year.
The annual gala is an important way for our community
to come together to invest in student success. The evening
featured several inspiring student speakers, the Alumna
of the Year award presentation, silent and live auctions
and a “raise the paddle” appeal for student scholarships. Guests enjoyed performances by Saddleback’s
own Commercial Music Ensemble conducted by Dr. Ariel
Alexander and the Jazz Combo conducted by Joey Sellers
and were entertained by mentalist magician Jim Eggold.
Each year, Gala proceeds fund scholarships and other
college programs and services that support students.
Thanks to the event’s philanthropic support, students
who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford the cost of
attending college are given opportunities to realize
their educational and career aspirations. Dr. Tod A. Burnett
thanked the guests for their support of the gala: “There’s
no more important investment than investing in the future
of our youth. Your presence tonight is a wonderful testament to how much our community cares for Saddleback.”
Foundation Board of Governors President Mike Hamilton
also recognized the top sponsors of the event and led the
crowd in singing Happy Birthday to one of Saddleback
College’s oldest students. Sculptor Hyam Fink turned 99
years “young” the night of the Gala. Hyam has been a loyal
student of the arts at Saddleback for many years and
donated several of his pieces to the silent auction.

2016 ALUMNA OF THE YEAR
MICHELLE DESILETS ‘85 • FOUNDER AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
ORANGUTAN LAND TRUST
Congratulations to Alumna of the Year
Michelle Desilets, ’85 who was honored
at Saddleback Foundation’s annual gala.
M
ichelle Desilets took her first class at Saddleback
when she was still in high school and it turned out
to be so fascinating, that it ended up influencing
the course of her life. The class was Physical Anthropology
and she was particularly interested in the study of the
great apes, chimpanzees, gorillas and orangutans. Michelle
went on to study a variety of subjects at Saddleback
College in 1984 and 1985, focusing mostly on Liberal
Arts and transferred to Dominican University in San
Rafael, California in fall 1985, where she ultimately
earned her Bachelor of Arts degree with honors in
English Literature. She then earned her teaching certificate at California State University, Long Beach. During
these years, she traveled extensively in many parts
of the world, including Europe, South America, Africa
and Asia. It was on one of these trips that she visited
and orangutan rescue center and it changed her life. In
late 1997, she and a fellow volunteer decided to open a
primate rescue center in Central Borneo which is
now the world’s largest such facility. In 2002, Michelle
founded the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation UK.
As Executive Director, she initiated campaigns to stem the
illegal trade of orangutans, repatriate known smuggled
orangutans, and support sustainable palm oil.
18
Foundation Annual Report 2015-16
In 2009, Michelle founded the Orangutan Land Trust,
whose mission is to provide solutions for the longterm survival of the orangutan in the wild, by ensuring
safe areas of forest. The focus is on protecting critical
areas of orangutan habitat as well as the release of the
hundreds of rescued orangutans currently in rescue
centers. In addition to her charity work, Michelle has
served as a consultant to international film crews,
including those from BBC, PBS and Animal Planet, for
such series as Orangutan Island and Orangutan Diary.
She is currently advising on a new film project undertaken for ITV (UK) and PBS. In recent years, the Borneo
Orangutan Survival Foundation was honored by the
BBC Wildlife Trust as one of the top ten UK charities
working to save wildlife globally, and was featured in a
series called Saving Planet Earth.
“Securing safe forest habitat is the single
most important thing we can do to save the
orangutan from extinction.”
— Michelle Desilets

S
addleback College Foundation is honored
to recognize 89 generous donors who have
established endowments. When a donor
establishes an endowed scholarship fund, the gift
amount is retained in perpetuity and the revenue
from the fund provides annual awards to students
on a continual basis. By setting up an endowment
of $10,000 or more, donors ensure that scholarships
will be awarded in perpetuity. In the past year, Sue
and Bill Gross gave the second largest single gift to
Saddleback College Foundation — $1 million to support career and technical education students. Two
other generous donors, Gary Damsker and Elizabeth
and Philip Hiestand, created new endowments in
2015-2016 to assist Saddleback students in pursuing their educational goals.
