Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Public higher education is funded through a public and private partnership. Public colleges depend on state funding, student tuition and 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.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Foundation changes lives by:

1. Introducing new friends and future supporters to the college
2. Empowering students and helping them stay in school with scholarships and emergency assistance funds.
3. Contributing to college-wide programs and initiatives.
4. Supporting employee growth, development, and appreciation.

The CPTC Foundation Board of Directors set annual goals to achieve these aims.

1. Work to fulfill the priorities of Clover Park Technical College. The top priority to encourage enrollment and retention will be scholarships. Emergency Assistance in varying forms is important towards student retention.
2. Build a sustainable fundraising process that includes best practices within the nonprofit sector.
3. Strengthen the relationship with our friends while developing new friendships.

The Foundation is governed by a volunteer board comprised of local business and community leaders and is guided by an Executive Director. In addition, select college staff serve as Ex-officio directors, lending expertise to the Board. The CPTC Foundation also relies on the support of volunteers and community partnerships with local industry leaders, employers, and business owners to help reach our goals.

Each year the CPTC Foundation has awarded more scholarships and emergency assistance dollars to help CPTC students reach their goal of obtaining a degree that will help them be a part of tomorrow's workforce. The CPTC Foundation has connected the college to important community relationships and expanded the support the college has received from industry partnerships. In addition, the CPTC Foundation board has continued to grow as we build new relationships within our community.
