The Vision of The Decameron Foundation
In collaboration with California State University Bakersfield, The Decameron Foundation strives for an ever increasing percentage of baccalaureate degrees conferred per capita in the Bakersfield Metropolitan Area. To that end, The Decameron Foundation will make an impact as a force for good for generations to come.
The Decameron Foundation will cultivate excellence among the CSU Bakersfield student body, an appreciation for the arts, sciences, and humanities, and promote lifelong learning. These efforts will further serve to raise the public and self-image of Bakersfield as a community centered around education and continued improvement.
"The world of higher education is always changing and now more than ever, students need support from alumni who have been in their shoes. I think from this vantage point we can effectively empower our college students and at the same time give back to the university and add value to the community."
— Zandre Azogue, Chairman
