PenguinsGive a success

Clark College supporters stepped up to the plate and hit a homerun during this year’s PenguinsGive, Clark College Foundation’s annual 24-hour fundraising event on April 25. The Foundation raised a total of $66,124 for Clark College during PenguinsGive this year.

This year PenguinsGive coincided with the Sakura Festival and Take your Child to Work Day at Clark College. There is no better time to be a Penguin than when campus is busy with activities and celebrations. On that note, there is a lot to celebrate about PenguinsGive this year including:

  • $66,124 raised for Clark College
  • 254 digital gifts
  • Largest single gift: $8,000 to Surveying and Geomatics

Top 5 funds by number of donors:

  1. Men’s soccer
  2. Clark College Student Success Fund
  3. Women’s softball
  4. Student Scholarships
  5. Working Parent Scholarship

Umpqua Bank provided two challenges, the 10 a.m. coffee break challenge and the 5 p.m. happy hour challenge. The first department or program to get 10 gifts received an extra $250. Congratulations to the winners of these challenges:

  • A new scholarship for Clark students who are working parents
  • The Penguin Softball team

The 2024 PenguinsGive campaign would not have been as successful without the support of so many of you. A huge thank you to those who gave!
