Our Role Today
Public higher education is funded through a public and private partnership. Public colleges depend on state funding, student tuition/fees, and auxiliary enterprises to operate. Only 60 percent of the College’s operating budget is made up of state funds. With state budget reductions, private financial support is more important than ever, and the Foundation’s commitment to helping close this funding gap is vital. To accomplish this, we look to our community to help support our initiatives. In turn, we return that investment by supporting the educational goals of our students and helping them to become contributing members of the community.
The Foundation is governed by a volunteer board comprised of local business and community leaders and is guided by an executive director. In addition, some college staff serve as Ex-officio directors, lending expertise to the Board. Director’ biographies are available here.
The Clover Park Technical College Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the needs of the Clover Park Technical College students & programs.
