About Us

Clark College Foundation was established in 1973 as the 501(c)(3) fundraising partner of Clark College. With financial gifts from you, the foundation provides the college with student scholarships, program and infrastructure support and community resources. More than $1 million scholarships, awards and financial support is awarded annually to more than 500 students. Clark College Foundation’s endowment market value is top 5 in the nation for public community colleges according to the Council for Aid to Education, 2016. Nationally recognized for excellence in fundraising and communications, we are the 2017 silver and bronze winners for feature writing and fundraising publications by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) in District VIII and the 2015 gold winner for campaign fundraising communications. In 2015, we earned the Educational Fundraising Award for overall performance and overall improvement from national CASE, which is based in Washington, D.C.
