Sponsorship opportunities

Why sponsor "An Evening for Opportunity"?

PCC is the largest institution of higher education in the state of Oregon, serving more than 80,000 people each year. Forty-five percent of degree-seeking students need some form of assistance to help pay for tuition, fees, books, and supplies—and your support ensures these deserving students have the support they need to achieve their goals. A philanthropic investment in the PCC Foundation directly helps PCC’s students and their families through the funding of scholarships and student success initiatives.
