Foundation - Home
Since 1962 GHC Foundation has been here to "increase opportunities for deserving students to realize their educational goals by offering scholarship assistance and strong support of the academic environment of the college.”
We accomplish this through building authentic relationships with our alumni, friends of Grays Harbor College, community/civic leaders and and the business community.
Through dedication and hard work, our foundation has created a stable, long-lasting organization that offers our students a chance to be on campus and thrive in their learning. We work closely with many departments on campus to connect students to resources that help them fulfill their passions and interests.
Our scholarship program awarded 300 scholarships for the 2015-16 school year. Totaling $600,000. More than 70 of those were full tuition scholarships.
Our World Class Scholar Program invites junior high aged students in Grays Harbor and Pacific Counties to make a plan for college. When they complete a few basic requirements they have a scholarship waiting for them.
In other giving to the College more than $100,000 was appropriated for Childcare Grants, Athletic Scholarships, Graduation Breakfast, Year end awards, Modumath Software and much needed instructional equipment!
This year we awarded over $10,000 in Faculty Excellence grants.
We invite you to join us in continuing the legacy of quality education and providing an excellent education that has a lasting impact to everyone in our communities.
GHC will celebrate 85 years in the fall of 2015. We invite you to join us as we open a new STEM building housing our nursing program and sciences.
Thank you to our many supporters some of whom live within the College’s service district of Grays Harbor and Pacific counties; others live far away but proudly keep their GHC ties.
Go Chokers!!Jan Jorgenson, Executive Director
