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. Mail your check to:  CCC Foundation, 1651 Lexington Ave., Astoria, OR 97103 or click on the Donate button from any page of the CCC website to make a secure gift through PayPal.   

To learn more about how to contribute through your estate plan, or how to establish an endowed fund, contact Patricia Warren at 503-338-2306.

Gifts to the CCC Foundation are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
