The impact of your gift matters

The goal of the Whatcom Community College Foundation is to ensure access to higher education for students from all backgrounds, and to promote academic innovation and excellence on our campus. Thanks to our generous donors, more students are discovering and achieving their dreams at Whatcom.

Thank you for considering a gift to the WCC Foundation. Whatcom Community College is built on the commitment and support of people like you. Whether you're making your first gift today or you have been a passionate supporter for years, every gift represents an investment in our students, faculty and community. No matter how you decide to give, your generous contribution has the ability to make an extraordinary difference in the lives of our students.

All gifts are important and add up to make a difference. Donors can choose to give one-time, recurring or multi-year gifts of cash, securities, properties and in-kind donations, as well as planned gifts over time. Our staff can work with you to determine which option is best for you.

You may choose to designate your tax-deductible donation to a particular scholarship, endowment, program or department, or you may want to support the Annual Fund for Excellence and support areas of greatest need. There are many existing funds available that you can contribute to, or we can help you to establish a new fund.
