Who We Are

Clark College Foundation is an independent, self-funded, self-governed, nonprofit that assists Clark College through philanthropy. It was established in 1973 as a 501(c)(3) organization.

Today, we are engaged in a $35 million comprehensive campaign that is one of the most important initiatives in Clark’s history.

Clark College Foundation awards more than $1 million in scholarships, special awards and financial support to more than 840 students each year. In addition, we support between $2 million to $4 million more a year depending on the college’s needs for programs, projects and faculty/staff development.

We are a national leader as the 2019 recipient of the Educational Fundraising Award from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE); 2017 silver and bronze winner for feature writing and fundraising publications by CASE in District VIII, and 2015 gold winner for campaign fundraising communications.
