Blair Moss, CEO & Executive Director

Prior to Desert Scholarship Foundation, Blair was a Development Professional for 8 years, creating fundraising and marketing programs to help the homeless and less fortunate in the Coachella Valley.

A proud graduate of Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with focus on planning events and weddings, never did she dream she would dedicate her work to helping those in need. Blair devoted six years of her career to helping Father Joe fundraise to clothe, shelter, educate and provide care for the homeless in San Diego (Father Joe’s Villages) and Coachella Valley (Martha’s Village and Kitchen). 

Presented with the opportunity to help make education a possibility for members of her community, she founded Valley Scholarship Foundation. As a first generation college student, she understands and values education. Her goal: Help make education possible for others who can not otherwise afford to do it alone all the while building a better tomorrow and sharing the love.

She continues to engage in the community, an active Parishioner and volunteer at St. John’s Cathedral and volunteer at St. Joseph’s Catholic School where her two young boys attend.
