Who We Are

What does the TBCC Foundation do?

Most students who attend TBCC need some financial help to attend college. Many students work full-time, support families, and balance multiple responsibilities while trying to achieve their education. With the help of generous donors, the TBCC Foundation funds student scholarships to ensure that education is always accessible.

But that’s not all. We also support educational programs at TBCC to help the college have the necessary resources to stay current. The Foundation’s purpose is to engage the entire community and increase philanthropic support for student scholarships and the growth, innovation, and overall financial strength of Tillamook Bay Community College.

We do this by sharing stories about current and former students and by offering opportunities for the community, corporate partners, grantors, employees, and alumnae to contribute to fundraising through the following activities.

What is our mission?

To increase the awareness and level of financial resources available to Tillamook Bay Community College to provide quality education and bridges of opportunity in serving students and the diverse educational needs of the college and community.

What do we value?

We value our donors and prospective donors and their confidence that philanthropy is a transformative power and their assurance that their contributions are essential to our student’s success and the academic excellence of Tillamook Bay Community College.
