Year End Appeal for Student Success!

Our students will appreciate you being there for them during our Year End Appeal. Your contributions will help them pursue their education, improve their lives, and yours too! 85% of our graduates live and work within 25 miles of our campus, so when you support our students, you are also supporting the community we all live in and love!

What We Do

We award over $1 million each year to support student scholarships, academic support, emergency needs, college readiness initiatives, and career success. We do this via annual fundraising through annual giving, one-time donations, events, major gifts, and other philanthropic support provided by individuals like you, as well as organizations.

We are governed by a 25-member volunteer Board of Directors, representing business, industry, community, and the OCC student body. We've been pursuing this mission since 1980.
