"I was lucky enough to be one of the first employees of Ohlone College, and my experience as an employee encouraged me to become a student. It was a wonderful decision. Ohlone College gave me the confidence to succeed. I learned a great deal and was involved in many aspects of the college. Ohlone gave me the start I needed. Now, it's very fulfilling to give back through the Foundation. I especially love hearing about students who attend today and how the college is making a difference in their lives."

Ways to Give

The Foundation receives the bulk of its financial support from individual community members, local businesses, and private funding groups and foundations. Donations, endowments, grants, and other gifts are an important source of funding for the College and its students. Of course, each gift to the College indirectly benefits the entire community as well by increasing opportunities for education.
