Emergency Endowment Campaign
The CPTC Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization that is dedicated to providing assistance to Clover Park Technical College and its students, staff, and faculty. The Foundation primarily focuses on fundraising in order to assist with funds for:
- Student scholarships
- Emergency assistance
- Staff and Faculty Development
- Academic Program enhancement
- Community involvement (Outreach and recruiting efforts)
The Foundation kicked off a three year campaign designed to help provide sustainable support for Emergency Assistance to students. The Emergency Assistance program is currently funded by direct donors, as well as an endowment (a large sum of money that was given to the Foundation to invest, and the interest from that investment is used annually to support the program). The three year campaign will focus on doubling the funds in the endowment, so that the interest earned can meet the needs of the program without having to continually fundraise from individual donors every year.
You did it!
You helped us reach our goal of doubling the Emergency Assistance endowment! When we set the goal to raise $75,000 over three years, we never dreamed that the overwhelming support for this campaign would help us reach the goal in the first year. We are proud of the community we live and work in, and can attest to the passion and love our community has for the students of Clover Park Technical College. Through your support for our 2017-2018 fundraising events such as our Annual Giving Campaign, Giving Tuesday, the 75th Anniversary Gala, and the Trek for Tech, we were able to raise $114,320 in vital support for CPTC and its students.
Your generosity will continue to make an impact on our students for the life of our endowment. I’m going to make sure of it.
Your support of our work is essential and I hope you’ll continue to follow the news at www.cptc.edu to see the great things happening here.
We would love to continue your involvement with the Foundation’s efforts. Please visit our website at www.friendsofcloverpark.org to sign up for our emails. And do watch for invitations to our events such as the annual Scholarship Celebration on April 16th, our Annual Giving Campaign, the Trek for Tech 5K Run, and the many other volunteer opportunities we offer all year round.
Thank you again for your help in meeting our goal,
Dr. Tawny Dotson
