Your gift transforms lives.
Our students have big dreams. Many also face big obstacles. The Olympic College Foundation works to ensure that the cost of attending college isn’t one of them. We give out more than $400,000 a year in scholarships. For many recipients, those dollars are the difference between staying in school and dropping out. When you give to the Olympic College Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, you’re investing in their future. You’re transforming a life.
