Give the Gift of a College Education
For many students, a scholarship can determine whether they even attend CBC. For others,
it means they don’t have to work multiple jobs while pursuing their education and
building a better life.
Any donation amount contributes to changing a student’s life. Your donation may be a one-time gift of any size, or you may select to create a permanent scholarship. Permanent scholarships can be made anonymously, in your name, your family, company or organization’s name, or as a memorial to a loved one.

Donors may create an endowed scholarship fund with gifts of $25,000 or more, given
as a one-time gift or over time. With an endowment, your gift is deposited into a
permanent investment account managed by the CBC Foundation. Each year, a portion of
the annual proceeds provide a scholarship to a deserving student. With optimal investment
performance, the principal in your endowment also grows, to guarantee continued support
of student scholarships across generations. You can make additional gifts to your
endowed scholarship fund at any time to grow your impact, including a legacy gift.
With annual or endowed scholarships, you have the option to specify the criteria a student must meet to be considered for the award, such as field of study, GPA or financial need. You also have the opportunity to meet the student or students who benefited from your support, during the annual Columbia Basin College Student Scholarship Award Reception.
