Boyett Petroleum’s Make Dreams Real Endowment Fund Exceeds $1 Million Dollar Goal

The Make Dreams Real Endowment Fund, founded by The Boyett Family, hosted the 26th Annual Make Dreams Real Golf Tournament on Thursday, May 14, 2015. The tournament, played at 3 courses; Del Rio Golf and Country Club, Oakdale Golf and Country Club and Saddle Creek Golf Resort (Copperopolis), was sponsored by 85 businesses and individuals and had 310 golfers participating in the tournament. With the help of more than 75 volunteers and the generosity of many, the tournament was a great success, raising approximately $306,000 for the Make Dreams Real Endowment Fund. The Endowment Fund has exceeded it’s 2016 goal of a $1million dollar balance, with a current balance of nearly $1.1million dollars. The fund distributes 10% of the balance annually as grant funding throughout Stanislaus County. Boyett Petroleum’s “Cruisers” gas stations and convenience stores also collected donations during April and May during their annual “Send a Kid to Camp” campaign collecting over $15,000 from generous customers throughout the community.

The Make Dreams Real Endowment Fund was established by The Boyett family in 2009 to provide funding support for children’s programs in Stanislaus County. The mission of the Make Dreams Real Endowment Fund is making dreams real for school aged children in Stanislaus County through participation in programs that enrich and stimulate their minds and bodies and teach values through service learning. Children that participate in the supported programs, and their families, are encouraged to volunteer within the program, fundraise and help with community events. The Make Dreams Real Endowment Fund has awarded more than $280,000 in grant funding since the fund’s inception. The Stanislaus Community Foundation administers the Fund. Fundraising is conducted solely through the annual Make Dreams Real Golf Tournament. Boyett Petroleum underwrites the entire cost of the tournament so that every dollar received goes into the endowment fund with absolutely no deductions.
