Each fall, the Donor Appreciation Breakfast honors the Foundation’s donors who make WCC’s academic excellence and innovation possible. This recognition event showcases the significant impact private funding has on the College and our students. Proceeds of the event support student scholarships and important College programs.

The WCC Foundation 2015 Excellence in Educational Giving Award recipients were David and Carol Robinson and Dawson Construction.

Upcoming sponsorship opportunities...

College Conversations

A small gathering in an intimate setting where donors and friends can hear about the College while learning about a special topic of interest. Typically hosted in a generous donor’s home, past topics have included secrets of a restaurateur with Robert Fong; An interview with TV & film producer Bob Goodwin; an evening of clay art with local artists Patricia Morse & Rob Beishline; and more. Several college conversations are held throughout the year. Contact us for more information. 

Scholarship Recognition & Awards Ceremony

A special celebration to honor the achievements of our scholarship recipients at the culmination of the academic year each Spring. In addition to recognizing the students in front of their family and friends, this event provides an opportunity for students to meet and thank the donors whose generous gifts have had a significant impact on their lives.
