Clover Park Technical College Foundation

The Clover Park Technical College Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the needs of CPTC students and programs. Established in 1992, the Foundation is overseen by a volunteer board of up to 24 members. Board membership reflects the diversity of the community and the industries served by the college.

The Foundation changes lives by:

  • Raising funds for students, programs, equipment, technology, and capital projects.
  • Introducing new friends and future supporters to the college.
  • Helping students through difficult times, empowering them to stay in school with scholarships and emergency assistance funds.
  • Supporting employee growth, development, and appreciation.
  • Contributing to college-wide programs and initiatives.

The Clover Park Technical College Foundation Board of Directors is composed of local business and community leaders who volunteer their time and donate their talents and resources to raise friends and funds for the college. The funds raised through their efforts support the college and students through student scholarships and emergency grants, allow the college to acquire state-of-the-art equipment and technology, and offer faculty and staff professional development awards.
