Despite a campaign that ran right down the middle of the Great Recession, we am proud to inform you that we surpassed our $20 million goal!
How much did we raise?
For the final number, please join us for a celebration on September 30 at Clark’s main campus. But I will give you a hint: We met campaign goals in multiple areas including early learning, dental hygiene and other health science areas, scholarships and endowments.
For 80 years, Clark has played a key role in educating and training members of our community. Through economic crises, community rebuilding and prosperous times, Clark College has been here to ensure the vibrancy of our region. The groundwork we laid over the past five years is a great start to this charge.
The Ensuring a Bright Future: Campaign for Clark College has been instrumental in bridging the challenges facing our community. The funds raised have made it possible to offer relevant and accessible education and training for people in tandem with industry workforce needs.
Raising this level of funding at Clark is unprecedented. It’s because of you. You recognize the pivotal role Clark plays in enriching Southwest Washington. Students and the region’s residents will all enjoy the fruits of our collective success for the next 80 years and beyond.
Mark your calendar for September 30 so that we can thank all those who contributed and celebrate our accomplishments.
Though the Ensuring a Bright Future: Campaign for Clark College was enormously successful, we have campaign initiatives that are unfinished. We will continue to seek support for these areas, in which there are several naming opportunities.
- Excellence Fund for Teaching and Learning
- Penguin Promise scholarships
Thank you. We’ll see you September 30 .
