CCC Foundation Arts & Experiences 

Auction & Dinner

Thanks to many generous donors, guests and volunteers the Clatsop Community College Foundation raised over $123,000 at its annual Arts & Experiences Dinner and Auction on Saturday, May 6.

Approximately 200 patrons including community leaders, college representatives, artists and arts supporters from around the area joined the festivities at the Astoria Golf & Country Club to raise money in support of CCC students.

The event featured silent and live auctions showcasing works of art provided by local and regional artists as well as multiple experience and trip packages up for bid. Guests also enjoyed champagne service and a fabulous dinner.

The Special Appeal, an opportunity during the live auction for guests to make a 100% tax-deductible donation, was dedicated to raising funds for student scholarships and generated $37,000.

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 $2.9 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 ensure 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.
