2016_Lisa GibertClark College campuses teem with thousands of students each year pursuing their higher education goals. Our donors are central to their success by providing scholarships and program support so that students get an opportunity to enhance their quality of life and enrich the community.

As 2016 draws to a close and I pause to reflect, I’m very proud to share a momentous accomplishment made possible by our generous donors.

For the first time in its 43-year history, Clark College Foundation will distribute more than $1 million dollars in scholarship awards during this academic year.

It has taken a great effort to get to this monumental achievement. For 83 years, the college has attracted students with rich and diverse interests and backgrounds, while hundreds of volunteers and concerned citizens have assisted in expanding the role of education as a fundamental solution to some of society’s ailments. Meanwhile, thousands of donors have stepped up and boldly said, “Yes, I want to invest in Clark College to make a difference.”

For me, Clark College has transformed my life by making me a more caring and compassionate leader and woman. For that reason, I pay it forward in support of others as so many have supported me.

Thank you for helping us reach this milestone. We are recognizing this feat by calling it our $1 million scholarship movement—something you will hear and see more about through next year. Now, I ask you to join me in keeping the momentum going by making a contribution in support of Clark students before the year comes to a close.

Join the $1 million scholarship movement today. Become a donor and make your mark on a brighter future.

Million dollar movement
