News & Events 2014 Columbia Gorge Gatherings announced

CGCC Foundation launches the 2014 Columbia Gorge Gatherings: An annual series of food and friend events

Columbia Gorge Gatherings is a series of fundraising and friend-raising social events that benefit the Columbia Gorge Community College Foundation endowment fund. In 2010, CGCC received a Title III grant that included an endowment match challenge. The Title III grant will match up to $200,000 during the grant’s life, which is five years. Once the principle goal is reached, this fund will allow the foundation to invest the interest in CGCC’s students and programs. Since the endowment’s principal is never spent, gifts to this fund help create financial stability. This makes each gift part of a long-term investment in the college, benefiting students and faculty for generations.

Last year, Columbia Gorge Gatherings 2013 included three events that contributed to the permanent endowment fund. The Harvest Tea Luncheon, An Evening on the River, and Southern Hemisphere Wine Exploration, raised $6,325. This year, the foundation is hosting three more events, providing additional opportunities for community members to support this initiative and contribute to the permanent endowment fund, while enjoying the event experience.

Space is limited for each gathering. To make reservations for one or more of the gatherings, please call the foundation office at (541) 506-6121.
