Education and the arts have suffered most through decisions made about funding to education and our communitycolleges. But, it has been proven that arts and education that benefit local economies most in creating culture,growth and consumer motivations for supporting local endeavors. They are, however, the most misunderstoodfactors in education. The Fashion Program boasts one of San Joaquin Delta College’s most successful programs,but also one of its least funded. Therefore, it has been left to the students to raise funds for their own academicactivities, including field trips, special events, fashion shows and even the program’s marketing and outreach. And, itis up to those who care about the program to reach out for assistance to keep it thriving on the Delta Collegecampus!We manage to do a LOT with very little! The Fashion Program is incredibly successful, preparing students for realisticand successful careers in the fashion industry and it is reflected in the success of its students who have graduatedand are now doing amazing things! The program has grown over the past twenty years into a model program for thecommunity college system. Delta’s Fashion Program has had great success in the past twenty years and hasproduced some incredible success stories! Stockton can be proud of the fact that such a thriving and respectedprogram exists in its community.We hope you will want to keep vibrant programs alive and well in San Joaquin County, especially those that promoteand attract culture and art!Unlike many other so called “fashion weeks” and “fashion events,” the Fashion Program produces events with nofunding support from the college and working as a completely NOT-FOR-PROFIT 501 C(3) foundation. This setsus apart from other fashion events in the region who have no such standing, where any donation to ourfoundation is completely tax deductible and is providing NO administrative or salary funding, but 100% fundingtowards the endeavored event.
