Our Mission

The mission of the Oakland Community College Foundation is to obtain financial support to advance the mission and goals of the Oakland Community College.

The Oakland Community College Foundation was established in 1979 to raise private contributions in order to provide opportunities for students, and to enhance the quality of education at the College. Gift dollars support students through scholarships, equipment purchases and program development. All gifts to the OCC Foundation are eligible for federal tax deductions and the Michigan State Tax Credit. The OCC Foundation is governed by its Board of Directors, comprised of volunteer community leaders, representatives of the OCC Board of Trustees, administration and faculty.
