CCC Foundation

We believe everyone should have an opportunity to go to college. With the help of generous donors, the CCC Foundation helps students of all ages reach their dreams of careers, better jobs, or 4-year degrees. Contributions to the Foundation are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.


Why Donors Make a Difference

In June 2017, more than 300 students participated in our graduation ceremonies. Students from all walks of life were in attendance—some young, some older, some alone, some carrying their infants across the stage—all smiling and proud of their accomplishments. Supportive friends, staff and faculty surrounded them during their moment of celebration, equally proud of their success.

Also in attendance and probably not as easily identified, were the dozens of donors who contributed to student scholarships. In 2016, our scholarship funds awarded over $600,000 to more than 200 students, with an average award of more than $1,600 was a contributing factor to student success.

For all our donors, rest assured that your funds went to students who received hope and encouragement from your gifts. Your support of education reduces the student financial burden and helps us all create a wiser, healthier and more enlightened community.

Congratulations to those of you who received your certificate or degree, and thank you to those who supported them. We hope all of you feel pride in your contributions to student success and will remain faithful supporters of Clackamas Community College.

Purchase a leaf for the ELC Giving Tree

Clackamas Community College would like to invite you to be a part of a community-wide effort to help preserve and maintain what has long been a gem on the Oregon City Campus - the Environmental Learning Center.

For $250 a leaf will be handcrafted, welded onto the ELC Giving Tree, and recognized by name on nearby signage. The ELC Giving Tree is a beautiful sculpture created in honor of the College's 50th Anniversary. It will be prominently rooted near the entrance of the Environmental Learning Center.
