Your gift makes the dream of a college education affordable to all CLC students, building stronger communities and a better world.

Central Lakes College Foundation is a registered, non-profit organization committed to helping Central Lakes College maintain its high academic standing and enhancing the educational life of its students. In 1968, the foundation was established as an independent entity to solicit, receive, and administer gifts, grants, and bequests on behalf of the college. The foundation is governed by a volunteer board of community leaders who make all the financial decisions in regards to managing and accepting donations.

We believe in the value of an education and the opportunities knowledge brings. Our goal is to be a major force in providing opportunities for students to improve their lives through higher education, employment, personal living, and better quality of life. We strive to increase resources, raise funds, and nourish students of promise who with determination and perseverance transform their lives through education.

What students say...

"Your generosity has made an impact on my family and I am very grateful."

“As I continue my education at CLC I can only smile as I think about my future. Working hard, helping others, and completing my education are all large goals that consume my life. With this scholarship, you have helped me make all of these goals realities. For that, I thank you from the very bottom of my heart. You have given myself and my son a gift that can never be reciprocated - a chance for a better life.”

"It has been a lifelong dream of mine to be a Registered Nurse and I will complete my degree at Central Lakes College with my gratitude to you."

"I hope to one day be an individual that makes you proud to have invested in my future."

Together, we take tremendous pride in the stability of our Foundation. Truthfully, it is the past support of the Board, Alumni, along with that of CLC families, friends and colleagues, which has contributed immensely to the advancement and strength of our organization. We invite you to share in and support our commitment to help the CLC Foundation continue its growth. Thank you for your generosity to our community’s College Foundation.
