West Valley-Mission​​ Community College District Foundation

The Foundation raises funds to support much-needed scholarships and student-support programs in the West Valley-Mission Community College District.

The colleges provide transfer, degree, and certificate programs in lower division arts and sciences; community, career, and vocational education; and educational opportunities in basic skills plus English as a Second Language. The District strives to provide the most advanced academic and technological resources, comprehensive student services, and enriching experiences to help students succeed and to participate in a democratic society.

The mission of the West Valley-Mission Community College District Foundation is to raise private funds or endowments for capital and program needs which are not covered by other more traditional funding sources and to offer financial support through scholarship programs.

 Donate

Scholarships support student success and attainment of their academic goals.  Your scholarship donation can change a life when it helps with expenses that make or break a student's educational journey, such as tuition, textbooks, lab supplies, or other expenses.


If you are interested in endowing a scholarship, creating a planned giving legacy, or more information on general scholarship donations, please call the Foundation at 408-741-2164 or Board President, Bill Cooper, at 408-867-8440. We would love to assist. Together, we will continue to make a difference in the lives of these worthy students as they pursue their education.

Your gift is greatly appreciated!
