CC Foundation exceeds annual goals

IMG_5398The Centralia College Foundation wrapped up another record-setting year, beating both its 2014-15 fundraising and scholarship goals.

The 2014-15 Annual Campaign raised more than $554,000 to support student scholarships, faculty and staff awards, educational expenses, and college projects.

In addition, more than $746,700 in scholarships, tuition waivers, grants, and financial aid will be formally awarded to 242 Centralia College students at Scholarship Night at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 17 in the Corbet Theatre on the college campus. This is an increase of more than $5,000 from 2013-14, which was another record-setting year.

“We are thrilled at the level of participation we receive from the community for students at Centralia College,” said Centralia College Foundation President Lee Stevens. “The amount of support we receive reflects the importance of education in Lewis County. We are pleased to be the catalyst in making education possible for hundreds of students every year.”

Stevens added that 100 percent of donations to the Centralia College Foundation can be designated by the donor.
