Purpose of the Foundation
On 12/12/12, Arnoldo and Alma Ruth Avalos established the Avalos Foundation
to assist and encourage students from Butte, Glenn, Tehama, Yuba, Colusa
& Sutter Counties & Pleasanton Ca in their advancement of a
higher education at the University of California.
Since 6/10/10, Arnoldo and Alma Ruth Avalos funded one scholarship at
Gridley High for the advancement of higher education at one of the
University of California campuses. The scholarship was awarded to a
student who demonstrated high academic achievement, dedication to
community service, and showed financial need. Going forward the Avalos
will be funding 10 scholarships a year in the upper Sacramento Valley
High Schools and Community Colleges!
