Why it’s time to Think PCC First

The Campaign for Opportunity is a movement for giving Oregonians a better chance at success. From December 15, 2015 through October 15, 2020 the PCC Foundation raised $46+ million. With these funds, we will help close the gap for people who are being left behind and open the door to a more equitable future – for individuals and families, and for Oregon.

Our priorities

As the most relied upon institution in Oregon for providing pathways to opportunity for people in all stages of life, PCC is uniquely positioned to have a lasting impact on our local community.

But for too many Oregonians, a PCC degree is still out of reach.

The Campaign for Opportunity will provide funds for scholarships, mentoring, workforce development and urgent student need.
