The Paul J. DiMare Charitable Foundation donated $100,000 to the Mexican American Council to support local migrant farmworker students by providing them with college scholarships and educational support that will allow them to attend and complete college. DiMare is one of the largest growers of fresh-market tomatoes in the United States and one of the country’s most influential farmers.
DiMare is founder and trustee of the Paul J. DiMare Charitable Foundation, which contributes to numerous causes. In addition to his tremendous support for migrant farmworker education, he serves on numerous boards in the community.
“My family and I are committed to the wellbeing of others and the advancement of education for everyone in this country,” DiMare said.
The Mexican American Council is determined to be a catapult of change by providing migrant farmworker students with the academic and financial support that is needed to be successful in college.
“Through the generous support of Mr. Paul DiMare, we will be able to ensure that migrant farmworker students in our community have the opportunity to receive quality education,” said Maria Garza, president of the Mexican American Council.
