PCC Foundation Portland Community College Foundation

2019-20 Amo DeBernardis Legacy Society

Dr. Amo DeBernardis, or “Dr. De” as he was known at the college, served as PCC’s founding president from 1961 until 1979 when he retired. His vision, access to higher education for all, guides our work still today and many of his founding concepts are still integral to PCC’s mission. 

Donors who remember the PCC Foundation through a bequest, life income plan or other type of planned gift, whether intended or received, become members of the Amo DeBernardis Legacy Society, named in honor of the college’s first president. 

We thank this group for their thoughtful generosity.

If you have named PCC in your will or estate and would like to be listed in our Legacy Society or if you’d like to learn more about designating PCC as a beneficiary, please contact our office at 971-722-4382.

We make every effort to maintain an accurate list. If you find an error, please let us know by calling 971-722-4382 or emailing pccfoundation@pcc.edu.
