Bella Collina Employee Scholarship Fund

Welcome to Bella Collina! We’re sure you’ll find that our wonderful Club not only provides challenging golf for all ability levels, but also provides a warm and relaxing environment for all ages.

What we’re most proud of at Bella Collina, however, are our outstanding employees. Our food and beverage, Pro Shop, “Kids’ Club,” course maintenance, and administrative staff are simply the best San Clemente can offer.  And, our Club members take great pride in supporting their educational and career development.

Several years ago, Club members established an Employee Scholarship Fund, benefitting not only employees but their children and grandchildren as well. Those funds support post-secondary educational pursuits at colleges, universities, and vocational and technical schools. The Orange County Community Foundation (OCCF), one of the top ten community foundations in the United States, manages the fund and scholarship recipient selection process.

Since the fund’s inception in 2011, nearly $28,000 in scholarships has been awarded to our staff and their children, quite an accomplishment given that the first award was a $1500 grant. We’re extremely proud of the growth of our fund and the positive impact it’s had on our scholarship recipients.  

As post-secondary educational costs continue to rise, we hope to financially assist deserving individuals who are a part of our Club community.  As a Club member, we hope you’ll consider making a contribution to this worthwhile endeavor. Two donation options are available (see reverse). All contributions are tax deductible. Your support is greatly appreciated. and we’re delighted you’ve joined the Bella Collina family!

Warmest regards,

The Employee Scholarship Fund Committee
