The Klamath Community College Foundation was established as a non-profit tax-exempt 501(c) 3 organization in 1997 to receive and administer gifts and grants benefiting the college. During the last 16 years the KCC Foundation has supported the students by funding their pursuits toward higher education and providing the resources to help guide them toward success. This volunteer organization has gained momentum and in 2013, the Foundation hired its Executive Director.

The KCC Foundation is supported by staff, faculty, alumni and many generous community members who donate their time and financial support to building our campus community. Be a part of Klamath Community College Foundation and make a difference in the lives of our students and Klamath Falls.
