Foundation & Donation Details
The Shoreline CC Foundation is a separate 501(c) 3 tax exempt organization established in 1984 to provide funding for student and college needs not otherwise met by state funding and tuition fees. A volunteer Board of Directors composed of representatives of community leaders, business and industry professionals, alumni, and educators governs the Foundation. For the purpose of strengthening the development program and partially defraying related administrative costs, a fee of 5% will be assessed on all gifts and contracts made to the Shoreline Community College Foundation.
