Campaign Celebration September 30
VANCOUVER, Wash. – The entire community is invited to help Clark College Celebrate the successful completion of the Ensuring A Bright Future Campaign on September 30 from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. at the Andersen Fountain on the main campus of Clark College. The Campaign Celebration will include free games, food, and academic demonstrations by students. The event will be capped off by the official announcement of the total dollars raised. The original goal for the campaign was $20 million dollars, and it was previously announced that this number has been surpassed. Attendees at the event will learn by just how much.
The Ensuring a Bright Future was launched five years ago by the Clark College foundation with the goal of raising $20 million to help support Clark College in key areas that had been identified by the college, the Clark College Foundation, and the community. The Clark College Foundation is the separate philanthropic arm of Clark College with the mission of supporting student success and providing funds for program excellence at the college.
