CCC Foundation


Thank You for Your Support!


Thank you to the many generous sponsors, donors, guests, and volunteers who helped the Clatsop Community College Foundation raise over $126,000 at its annual Arts & Experiences Auction & Dinner on Saturday, May 5. Approximately 230 patrons joined the festivities in CCC’s Patriot Hall to raise money to support student scholarships and departmental equipment needs.

The event featured silent and live auctions showcasing works of art provided by local and regional artists as well as multiple experience packages up for bid. The Special Appeal, an opportunity during the live auction for guests to make a 100% tax-deductible donation, was dedicated to scholarships and generated $40,000.

The Gift of Education Changes Lives and Destinies

Clatsop Community College is the North Coast's center of exploration and learning where leaders of today and tomorrow begin their careers, hone their skills, and develop the qualities needed to build the community we imagine.

The CCC Foundation was established in 1960 as a separate 501(c)(3) organization to provide philanthropic support for the College, its students and programs.  Currently, the Foundation manages approximately $3.3 million in privately donated funds which provide scholarships for CCC students and funding for CCC programs.

Your legacy gift to the Clatsop Community College Foundation will insure a solid future for students of all ages. There are many ways to leave a lasting impact:

  • Establish a named and endowed scholarship or program support fund.

  • Name the Clatsop Community College Foundation as a beneficiary of your will, trust or life insurance.

  • Give to the Fund for Excellence that supports the current needs of CCC

Please join the many community members, CCC staff and faculty, College Board and CCC Foundation Board members who have already contributed generously. Mail your check to:  CCC Foundation, 1651 Lexington Ave., Astoria, OR 97103 or click on the Donate button here to make a secure gift.
