PCC Foundation looks to raise funds & bridge the gap


PCC Willow Creek   Portland Community College's (PCC) Foundation is looking to raise $30 million. 
   The Campaign for Opportunity hopes to close the gap for people who can't afford a PCC degree and open the door to a more equitable future. 
   The Foundation has already raised 80 percent of its goal. 
   The $30 million will be broken into four categories - $15 million for scholarships; $9 million for the Future Connects program, a personalized coaching and scholarship program for students who identify as first-generation or low-income; $5 million for workforce development; and $1 million for an urgent need fund.
