A group that raises funds for Santa Ana schools was right to decline a tobacco company's offer to donate money to the schools. The Santa Ana Unified School District is as strapped as any other district for money, so the offer of aid by the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. for the Santa Ana Education Foundation was tempting. Although the foundation is separate from the school district, its purpose is to raise funds for the schools.

A fund-raising arm of the Santa Ana Unified School District has come under fire for accepting a donation from the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. shortly after the district took part in a nationwide effort led by President Bill Clinton to crack down on teen smoking.

When UCLA film student Juan Carlos Ayala was in town last week to shoot scenes for a movie titled "Vida," an educational film that is his senior thesis, he reflected on the challenges of being not only its writer but also its director and producer. Sheer determination was a big factor in getting the Santa Ana native and his film crew here for the project. But Ayala, 24, also got help from the Santa Ana Education Foundation, which gave him a $4,000 scholarship.

Earlier this year, the Santa Ana Education Foundation approved of an offer from the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. to print some 3,500 brochures for a mariachi concert to benefit the local school district.

Community nonprofit groups that get thousands of dollars a year in grants from Orange County fear that a power shift on the Board of Supervisors will shut off the spigot.
