Congratulations to Clackamas Community College Foundation, the Oregon Council on Economic Education, and the Oregon Wildlife Foundation for being randomly selected as the recipients of Arnerich Massena’s #GivingTuesday drawing! These organizations were selected from Arnerich Massena’s 2021 Holiday Giving Guide as a way to honor #GivingTuesday; the firm will donate $1,000 to each of them. Learn more about each organization below.
(How did we randomly select these organizations? We created a custom spinning wheel online at https://pickerwheel.com/ and three employee volunteers spun the wheel to select entries from the Arnerich Massena Giving Guide!)
#GivingTuesday is “a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world.” It has grown since its founding in 2012 to become a global movement inspiring people across the world to give to those in need and celebrate generosity. Join us on November 30, #Giving Tuesday, in honoring the individuals, families, and organizations who have made a difference in our communities and been instrumental in driving positive change.
This year marks the fourth annual publication of Arnerich Massena’s Holiday Giving Guide, featuring charitable organizations to which we have a deep connection and for which we have a profound appreciation. The organizations in this guide have collectively made far-reaching impacts into countless lives, and we are pleased to offer this wonderful resource for generous souls seeking a way to give this season. Access the guide here.
Each year, three organizations are selected as the recipients of an end-of-year #GivingTuesday donation; congratulations to this year’s winners, detailed below.
For over 50 years, Clackamas Community College Foundation has worked with community members to fund accessible higher education for all CCC students. CCC has made education possible by providing innovative programs and support of the current and future change makers of Clackamas County. Whether students are pursuing a degree, seeking technical and career training to be more competitive in the workforce or returning for continued and lifelong learning, CCC provides support both inside and outside the classroom.
Clackamas Community College Foundation seeks to remove financial and economic barriers for students by assisting with tuition through annual and endowment scholarships. Because of these efforts, students who received a CCCF scholarship in 2020-21 were more likely to graduate than those who did not. The CCC Foundation aims to provide $1 million in scholarship aid annually.
