About Americana

The Americana Awards event is the college's largest fundraiser. Proceeds from the event support scholarships, emergency assistance, book loans, the "Mini Grants" program and other college initiatives that wouldn't otherwise be funded.

To support Americana, you can:

  • Attend the event — Americana is one of the premier events in the North Orange County area.
  • Contribute an item to the silent auction — A silent auction is held during the reception, and the Foundation is seeking some fun items.

For more information about the Americana Awards, please send an e-mail or call the Cypress College Foundation office at (714) 484-7126.
