Giving Online

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. Any established program or scholarship at the College can benefit from your gift, even named and endowed funds. You decide exactly where to direct your gift and how much you can afford to give. If you have no preference, indicate that your gift is "unrestricted" and the College will use it where the need is greatest. When making your gift, indicate the name of the fund or program you want to support under "purpose" on the PayPal site.

NOTE: If your gift is a tribute or memorial, please include the name and address of the individual you would like us to notify of your gift under the "special instructions" section on the PayPal site.
