Who We Are
Clark College Foundation (CCF) is an independent, self-funded, self-governed, nonprofit that assists Clark College through philanthropy. The foundation was established on July 25, 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.
Since its inception, Clark College Foundation has provided Clark College with nearly $73 million in college-related support. A sizable portion of that support each year is for students. Last year, $1 million in scholarships, special awards and financial support was directed to 560 students. Additionally, CCF provides $2 million to $4 million more annually for Clark programs, projects and faculty/staff development.
Our CEO Lisa Gibert is one of the leading fundraising executives in the country. She’s the 2018 recipient of the CASE National Commonfund Award for Leadership for Institutionally Related Foundations. CCF won a Spotlight Award from the Public Relations Society of America’s Oregon chapter and an Educational Fundraising Award from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) in 2019. We are the 2017 silver and bronze winner for feature writing and fundraising publications by CASE in District VIII; and a 2015 gold winner for campaign fundraising communications.
