The Desert Valley Charitable Foundation is a charitable fundraiser that was established by Dr. Prem Reddy in 1989. This is one of a dozen charities that Dr. Reddy is a proud member and supporter. Being a hugely successful businessman, Dr. Reddy’s philanthropic acts have benefited many in the United States and worldwide. The Desert Valley Charitable Foundation is among the many generous programs that the doctor personally initiated to give back to the community.
He catapulted the foundation with an initial gift of $1 million with the sole purpose of serving the healthcare and educational needs of the persons in Southern California and High Desert areas. In helping this cause, the foundation is geared towards addressing the nursing shortage in the area and helping future generations in acquiring scholarships and grants for their health care education. Additionally, the program also offers free public health library for scholars.
Every year, for the last decade the program has funded students with over $100,000. The package rewards students of outstanding academic excellence and is also involved in school and community services. The scholarship grant is open to all residents in the high desert who have a passion and want to pursue an accredited course in the healthcare related field.
