SRJC CRISIS RESPONSE FUND
SRJC is committed to responding to the ongoing coronavirus crisis by supporting our students in need. In addition to missing important classes and valuable learning opportunities, many SRJC students are missing work and suffering financial challenges without regular income. During campus closure, some do not have access to food, shelter, medical and mental health care, childcare, and other support resources.
The SRJC Foundation has established the SRJC Crisis Response Fund to help our students pay rent and bills, provide food, and support their families as they go without work and access to important services. Please help us to support a variety of basic needs so that we can continue transforming lives through education and preparing the workforce of the future! #SRJCstrong #SRJCfuerte

November 6, 2019, Santa Rosa, CA — Santa Rosa Junior College (SRJC) will welcome W. John “J” Mullineaux as the new Executive Director of the SRJC Foundation beginning Tuesday, Nov. 19. In this role, Mr. Mullineaux will oversee one of the largest and most successful California Community College foundations in the nation. With assets exceeding $64 million, which includes the SRJC Foundation Endowment of $57 million, the SRJC Foundation provides more than $4 million annually to assist students and academic programs.
Mr. Mullineaux is a long-time philanthropic leader in Sonoma County, with more than 30 years of experience in fundraising, gift planning, and charitable advising. For the last 11 years he has held the position of Vice President for Philanthropic Planning at the Community Foundation of Sonoma County, where he helps donors and their families envision and reach their philanthropic goals.
Prior to moving to Sonoma County, he held senior-level advancement positions at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA), the Asian Art Museum, San Francisco Ballet, and Columbia University. While at Columbia, he obtained a master’s degree in organizational psychology from Teachers’ College. He also became a Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy (CAP®) through the American College in 2014.
Mr. Mullineaux is a proud graduate of the University of Washington where he obtained a bachelor’s degree in communications. He has been active with the UW Alumni Association serving as President of the Bay Area Huskies for five years and as District Governor of the Alumni Association (UWAA) Board of Directors. He also served on the board of directors of the Oliver Ranch Foundation and the Redwood Empire Estate Planning Council, the steering committees of Leadership Santa Rosa and the Sonoma County LGBTQI Giving Circle, which he founded in April 2014. He has also been a 10,000 Degrees volunteer mentor and is supporting two first-generation college students in their goals of achieving a college degree.
President Frank Chong expressed his appreciation for outgoing Executive Director Kate McClintock, who has served as executive director for 11 years and will be retiring in December. During her tenure, the SRJC Foundation has grown its assets by $48 million and recently completed the 100th Anniversary Campaign which raised $12 million. Kate credits her success to the remarkable community of donors who give so generously to impact the lives of students attending SRJC.
“Kate has always been a committed advocate for SRJC’s students and faculty and her leadership and fundraising experience will be sorely missed by the entire community,” he said. “But I am confident that J will continue the Foundation’s 50 years of excellence in supporting SRJC students, faculty, and our entire college.”
