How You Can Help

Give to the CCCF Annual Fund.

The Annual Fund supports a variety of vital foundation and college programs including more than 20 annual Cascadia Community College Foundation scholarships and hundreds of small grants and loans for students.

 

Create a new named scholarship or memorial/tribute fund. 

Build a legacy while creating a better future for our students and our community. Establish a new scholarship based on your interests or those of a special loved one.

  • Annual scholarships – Gifts made on an annual basis are paid out directly to the scholarship recipient’s account to cover tuition, fees, books, or other expenses you designate.

  • Endowed scholarships – With a gift of $25,000 or more, you can provide invaluable support for students in perpetuity. The fund’s principal is permanently invested and the interest is used each year to fund the scholarship.

  • Memorial/tribute funds – Create a named fund to which you, your family, and friends can make gifts in honor or memory of a loved one. You may designate proceeds to be used for specific programs or areas of student aid that align with the interests, passions, or experiences of the person(s) being honored.

Contribute to established endowment funds.

You can help grow a permanent legacy of support for Cascadia students by contributing to endowment funds that have already been established.

  • Julie and Grant Davidson Memorial Scholarship
  • Tjossem Family Scholarship
  • Founders and Trustees Scholarship
  • Nathaniel Jacob Allen Memorial Scholarship
  • Gateway Scholarship
  • John and Margaret Bock Scholarship

Your generous support can change lives, one student at a time. How would you like to make an impact?
