CIOMA Memorial Scholarship Fund: Donate Now!


Originally established with contributions made by industry friends in memory of Ron Ahlport, Fred Bertetta Sr., and Jim Divine, the CIOMA Memorial Scholarship Fund provides financial assistance to help children and employees of CFCA members further their education and professional development.

The CIOMA Memorial Scholarship Fund provides scholarship awards to deserving students attending college or vocational programs at any accredited postsecondary institution.  It is publicly supported by generous contributions from CFCA members, their communities, and those who share an interest or affiliation with the fuel distributor and convenience store industries.

Scholarship recipients are selected based on academic accomplishments, extracurricular activities involving leadership and community involvement, educational goals, career goals, and an evaluation by a teacher, counselor, or supervisor.

If you have questions about our scholarship program or require further information about contributions and scholarship applications, please contact the CFCA offices at (916) 646-5999.

The CIOMA Memorial Scholarship Fund was established as a Nonprofit California Corporation and approved by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) Tax Exempt Organization. Contributions to the Fund are tax deductible to the extent they satisfy state and federal tax law requirements.

Please address any check donations to the CIOMA Memorial Scholarship Fund and send to 2520 Venture Oaks Way, Suite 100 in Sacramento, CA 95833.
