Who We Are.

Since 1967, the College of the Mainland Foundation has been making a difference in the lives of students. The fundraising arm of the College, the Foundation is a separate 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Gifts from our alumni, friends, employees, corporations and foundations support and maintain the highest quality of education for our students through scholarships, vital student programs and instructional innovations across campus.

By making a gift today, you can help build a students’ future and continue the tradition of excellence at COM. We are proud to say that 100 percent of your investment directly supports the students and programs at COM.

Making an Impact

The COM Foundation believes that finances should never be a barrier to a student achieving success, and we are committed to helping our students reach their educational goals by making college more financially accessible. If you ever wondered just how big the Foundation’s impact is on the lives of our students, we can tell you that, large or small, these generous gifts add up and are opening doors, one student at a time. Here’s how every dollar we receive is impacting our students:

Thankfully, COM provided me with scholarships to help me during this time.

Because of donors like you, Jennifer is on her way to getting an Associate’s degree. There are many students just like Jennifer. Would you please make a gift to train and educate more students?
