Welcome to the Southwestern Oregon Community College Foundation
Our mission is to support Southwestern Oregon Community College through promotion of philanthropy to improve people’s lives – socially, culturally, economically and educationally – through Friend-raising and Fundraising.
Thanks to support by generous donors, the Southwestern Foundation will award more than 100 scholarships this year to students high-skill and technical training, along with specialized and transfer degrees. We’ve also been able to invest annually in faculty innovation and collaboration on campus. And we’ve been able to grow interest among young people in the arts through our VISION art exhibits and competitions in partnership with the Coos Art Museum.
If you would like to be involved in our college and foundation, please let's start a conversation!
FOUNDATION NEWS & UPDATES
Our 2018 Distinguished Alumna
"I believe none of us make it to our goals alone,
and I feel when we succeed at our goals,
we should pay that forward by advocating
in our own communities. I am an activist for
the vulnerable and disenfranchised. Whether
that’s abused children, battered women or
neglected animals, I try to be a voice for
those who have no voice.”
