PRESIDENT'S CIRCLE


The Foundation is proud to offer its most generous donors the opportunity to join the President's Circle, a committed group of loyal supporters inspired to make a significant impact on the lives of individual students and our community.

These contributions make a significant and lasting impact here at Whatcom Community College, in the lives of our staff, students and ultimately our community as a whole.
