The Campaign for Opportunity

The PCC Foundation's first campaign, The Campaign for Opportunity, raised $46+ million to support students on their path to prosperity by providing resources that increase access and success.

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 December 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.

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 provides funds for scholarships, mentoring, workforce development, and urgent student need.
