Employee and Retiree Giving

Employee Giving is Powerful

On average, more than 200 current and retired Clark College employees make a donation every year. These gifts enhance student programs, provide students with scholarships, stock groceries at Penguin Pantry and add critical funds to department budgets.

Points Challenge for 2020-2021

When you take part in giving this year, a $5,000 match to Clark’s emergency grants fund will be unlocked thanks to generous donors. To get the match, we will reach for 2,020 points by June 30, 2021.

Get points by:

  • Giving a one-time gift and get 5 points. If someone gives two different times, get 10 points.
  • Giving a recurring donation and get 12 points. It doesn’t have to be a new recurring gift.

Point tally as of April 12, 2021:

218 one-time gifts reached 1,090 points. The goal was 775 points. Goal met. Thank you!

88 recurring gifts for 1,056 points. Goal is 1,245 points.

Current point total: 2,146
Our overall goal is met, but we’re still in need of recurring donations. Let’s keep going!

All new donors are entered into a drawing for a chance to award $500 to an existing Clark College fund of their choice.
