We transform lives by partnering with the community to support Olympic College and its students.
Sometimes that means providing safety equipment for a formerly homeless welding student. Sometimes it means funding the last class a student needs in order to graduate. It can also mean providing state-of-the-art medical mannequins to improve training for nursing students. And, we award more than 200 scholarships each year. For many students, those dollars are the difference between staying in school or dropping out. Thanks to our donors, we help students make their educational dreams come true. We transform lives.
Foundation support to OC for 2016-17 includes $437,830 for scholarships, $273,415 for programs, $97,626 for student emergency support and $39,227 for faculty and staff grants. Source: 2015-17 OC Biennial Community Report
