CASCADIA COLLEGE FOUNDATION PRESENTS...

WE GIVE, BECAUSE WE CARE EMPLOYEE (and friends) GIVING CAMPAIGN


Did you know?...

  • A majority of Cascadia's students attend part-time
  • More Cascadia students work than any other community college in the state
  • Part-time students are much more likely to drop out of college than full-time students
  • The fewer credits a student is enrolled for, the fewer options there are for financial assistance

It's a terrible paradox. Students get jobs to earn money to go to college. They enroll as part-time students because of work obligations. And because they aren't full-time students it's harder for them to qualify for scholarships, state or federal aid.

The Cascadia College Foundation wants to help reverse this cycle. It is creating a new scholarship specifically for part-time students. The award will allow them to cut back work hours and add on more classes. The higher credit load not only means they can reach their educational goal sooner but they can also qualify for financial assistance will have many more financial aid options.

The Cascadia College Foundation is asking employees (and friends) to help join us in helping 30 students to enroll in one more course this year each quarter. Our goal is $12,000. And we're already on the way. The first $4,000 raised by employees will be matched by a member of the Foundation's Board of Directors. This leadership gift set us up for success and our success means more of our students will succeed.
