Employee and Retiree Giving


Employee Giving is Powerful

At Clark College, we truly are here for our students every day and in many ways. In fact, more than 200 current and retired Clark College employees donate to support our students every year. These gifts enhance student programs, provide scholarships, stock groceries at Penguin Pantry and add critical funds to department budgets.

Gifts from employees add up. During the 2021-22 school year, more than $65,000 was given by our employees through the employee giving campaign. You can get involved today. Any gift of any size is welcomed, and it’s easy to do.

Payroll deduction

Payroll deduction is an easy way to ensure you never forget to make your gift. A small contribution every paycheck adds up to a big difference in the lives of Clark students. . Download the fillable form.

Credit Card Donation

Every gift counts! High participation in the employee-giving campaign sends a powerful message to our community that Clark employees believe in the work we are doing to support our students.

Make a gift to any area of Clark you are passionate about. Here is a list of some of the most common funds.
