Giving Opportunities Fund Listing Board of Directors
The Central Lakes College Foundation is the non-profit fundraising arm of the college. Its mission is to raise dollars primarily for student scholarships.
From the Executive Director’s Desk
It’s always exciting to talk about the foundation and the role it plays in supporting Central Lakes College. As the Foundation’s Executive Director, I want to say Thank You to all who have made a contribution whether it was financial, in-kind, time or talents.
The Foundation’s Board of Directors is made up of 20 community leaders who are committed to supporting lifelong learning, providing a trained workforce and serving our communities in this ever changing economy.
This past fall the Foundation announced its largest gift received of $1.145 million from alumna, Jean Porwoll. Jean was a 1969 graduate of the then Brainerd State Junior College. She continued her education at Moorhead State and later received her doctorate from the University of Minnesota. She was a liberal supporter of opportunities for women and viewed CLC as a conduit in providing an education at a most crucial stage. Today her gift translates into $35,000 in scholarships for the education of women.
Because of the generosity of our donors, we were able to award over $282,000 in scholarships this past year. As the cost of higher education continues to increase, our scholarship program plays an even greater role in the lives of CLC students; and the non-cash donations of $85,000 received provided much needed program equipment and materials to better assist students to learn and grow in their careers.
Again, Thank You for supporting the mission and vision of the Foundation as it continues to provide crucial assistance to Central Lakes College and its students. I encourage others to join us as we “Open Doors-Invest in Students.”
