A Message from the Foundation President

Thank you for your interest in the Columbia College Foundation. For over 40 years, the partnership between the Foundation and its donors has remained true to the vision of creating quality higher education that enriches the academic, economic and cultural life of our community.

As we increase our activities at the Foundation, we're seeing the results. Foundation assets topped $1 million for the first time last year. We have welcomed five new board members, launched a community lecture series and worked with community partners to award more than $94,000 in direct support through scholarships, awards, campus mini-grants and equipment purchases. Columbia College is such a cornerstone in this community. Your involvement and your donations will help us keep the momentum going for student success.

If you are interested in learning more about the work that we do, please contact the Foundation Office at (209) 588-5065. I would also encourage you to consider making a financial investment in the Foundation by making an online donation, visiting our gift giving page or mailing a check to 11600 Columbia College Drive, Sonora, CA 95370.
