Phyllis S. Howe Award and Scholarships
Phyllis S. Howe left the CAND Foundation a portion of her very substantial estate. In her name, a rotating award and scholarships are available for members of the Bay Area District, Diablo Valley District and the San Jose Peninsula District.
For the 2015-2016 year, the funds will be distributed to members of the San Jose Peninsula District.
Dorothy Chen-Maynard Annual Award :: Through the generous contribution of Dorothy Chen-Maynard, PhD, RD, Program Coordinator of the Nutrition and Food Sciences at CSUSB, this annual award for membership was created to provide needed financial assistance of nutrition professionals to pay for Annual Membership dues with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (the Academy).
This assistance is provided with the goal that recipients will go on to be successful members of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (formerly American Dietetic Association) to strengthen their relationship within the profession. There will be 4 awards given out each year with a value of $225 per award for 4 years or until the funds are exhausted. Review the application procedure.

DONATE TO CANDF
Did you know that a scholarship fund has to contain a minimum of $25,000.00 to be fully endowed?
It is at this level that the California Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation can assume that sufficient interest will be earned
to award scholarships and sustain the fund. When a scholarship is considered fully endowed, the Foundation can begin to award
scholarships from the fund. There are several ways that you can help to make this happen:
Club 100: Donate $100 to CANDF to be included in our Club 100 and your name will appear on our Website and your name
will be announced at our Annual Meeting. This is our easiest way to directly contribute to our scholarship fund.
Go to our new donate page!
Become a Partner: By sponsoring CANDF at one of our 3 levels, your business logo will be placed on our site and mentioned on our Annual Meeting materials.
Visit Us at Annual Meeting: Participate in our silent auction and basket drive! Visit our tables in the exhibit hall to view our new and exciting auction items.
Also sign up for our annual evening fundraising event that is sure to be an evening of entertainment! (See Annual Meeting
registration packet for more information.)
Leave a Legacy: Remember the California Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation in your will or as a beneficiary in your
life insurance. Your remembrance will help support dietetic
students, promote nutrition research and provide nutrition education to Californians. Here's how:
Make a will! Almost half the people in the US die without a will, thus missing one of the best and easiest ways to leave money to a charity of your choice. If you die with no will, state law determines how your assets are to be distributed and your favorite charity will receive nothing from you.
Having written your will (with appropriate legal advice), be sure to include a paragraph, which describes each bequest (a specific gift) to a family member or friend or to your favorite charity.
In addition to having a will, you may set up a living trust (with a lawyer’s help and advice) in which you can list specific gifts from your estate to the charitable organizations you wish to benefit.
Your estate consists of all your property and possessions at the time of your death. You may leave any possession to a charity such as securities, jewelry, art, a vehicle, boat, home or real estate.
You can donate an existing (or a new) life insurance policy by making the charity you select the policy’s owner or beneficiary.
You can benefit any charity by establishing a permanent endowment fund. Its future income will go to meet a specific need or provide for the programs you have designated in advance.
You can establish a “planned gift” with a charity that gives you (and another person if you wish) lifetime income, an immediate tax deduction and the gift will benefit the charity when you (both) die.
You may name a charity as beneficiary of your IRA or other pension account and receive a number of favorable tax benefits.
You can leave money to your favorite charity by encouraging family and friends to make their own wills and include bequests to their favorite charities.
