WCC is a place of opportunity, outstanding achievement and sometimes second chances, often in the face of enormous odds. With a devoted faculty and staff committed to students’ success, Whatcom offers an experience unparalleled at comparable educational institutions. 

The goal of the Whatcom Community College Foundation is to ensure access to higher education for students from all backgrounds, and to promote academic innovation and excellence on our campus. Thanks to our generous donors, more students are discovering and achieving their dreams at Whatcom.  

2018 Donor Appreciation Breakfast 

WCC President Kathi Hiyane-Brown and the WCC Foundation Board of Directors will host the 2018 Donor Appreciation Breakfast on Friday, October 19, from 7:30 – 9:00am at the Bellingham Golf and Country Club. Guests of this annual event hear from students how scholarship gifts change their lives and have an opportunity to meet and visit with Whatcom students. Students are at the heart of everything we do here at Whatcom Community College.

Whatcom’s academic leadership and success would not be possible without the support of donors like those we honor with the Excellence in Giving awards. The Excellence in Giving awards are presented at the Donor Appreciation Breakfast each year to WCC Foundation donors who epitomize what it means to give, and demonstrate their belief in our shared value of education.

Support the Orca Food Pantry through Project Kneaded Dough

  Project Kneaded Dough

Avenue Bread created Project Kneaded Dough to give back to important organizations in our community. Each month a charity is picked to receive the proceeds - that means that twenty-five cents is donated to WCC's Orca Food Pantry for every loaf of bread purchased throughout the month of October. If ever there was a time to embrace the carbs, it is now. Do it for the hungry students!Orca Food Pantry

Your gift in any amount is the bridge leading to a life of opportunities. Help Whatcom students stay on track to graduate. Let them know community values their persistence.
