The CGCC Foundation is a resource for you.

The CGCC Foundation is separate from the college. It is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization whose overall mission is to support scholarships, college programs, and capital campaigns at Columbia Gorge Community College. Organizationally, the Foundation is housed under the President’s Office and is governed by a board of directors made up of volunteers from the community. The Foundation’s priorities are raising funds for and administering student scholarships, and providing grant-writing and other supports for college programs.

Here are some of the services the Foundation office can assist with:

  • Scholarship fundraising and administration
  • Assistance when planning fundraisers
  • Corporate relations
  • Management of in-kind donations
  • Record-keeping and donor acknowledgment

Robert Wells-Clark, faculty

“In the Advanced Manufacturing lab we strive to learn and problem solve using metal, and to learn the many skills that the modern workplace requires and demands. From welders to computers and everything in between. My goal as the instructor is to serve as a guide on each student’s pathway to a new career, whatever lessons are necessary along the way.”
