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.

We recently received a major gift from Mr. Ken Millen a 1950 graduate of GHC.  Ken was a shoe salesman at Adamore's shoe store on Wishkah Street.  According to GHC Foundation President Tim Martin "Countless students will be able to attend classes, earn their degrees and start their futures because of the Millen's generosity."

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 307 scholarships for the 2016-17 school year.  Totaling $606,900.  More than 70 of those were full tuition scholarships.

The 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 and enroll in college level classes they have a $2,000 scholarship waiting for them.

In other giving to the College more than $130,000 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.

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!!
